nothing was instant,
even when
you started
to stick
all the parts together,
you did not find
a way to listen to
freezing the mic
but on the same day
you tried so hard
to listen to nothing
that even the sound
of your inner drone
was absent but yet active
Was this a vain attempt?
You know nothing.
You know that <<nothing>> can't be found.

It's simply what its title says : a recording of freezing a microphone (hydrophone - inside a water bag).

From the liquid state to the ice state, the original recording is 3 hours long, this release presents in around 40 minutes, 4 selections : from after 20 minutes to after 180 minutes.

Nothing more, pure source recording.

Assembled and mastered at Shiver Mobile in 2012.


released May 10, 2013
