Phase music, Phm 3 - Mechanical Clock music. Third and last part of the documentation of my earliest days of phasing field recordings and constructing music from them, and the Mechanical Clock music is a really special Album for that. I am now by my own consideration, producing a distinctive music.
Mechanical Clock music 1 - Rh 102. A Classic of my early work, raw and powerful - highly repetitious like some kind of mechanical clock. Like so often in my Visual Art, to which then, at the end of 2006, I fully intended to return, I would use a work as a steppingstone, to a more mcomplex work. Here MCm 1 would provide the frame for another layer that would become MCm 2.
Mechanical Clock music 2 - Rh 103. On the metal percussive framework of MCm 1 I 'Hung' the bells of MCm 2. So is one not a staging post of the other, well yes but that was my practice at the time, here in the phase lab. Certainly in these. for me, seminal works of Constructive Development, that these first three Phm Albums Document - a special time and place to discover the potential in Phasing layers. In separate Areas and separate mindsets, I was creating the foundations of my music.
Street music - Rh 104. You would be hard pushed to hear the field recording in this. I suppose by my own definition, of 'something taken beyond it's obvious instrumental of field source', we should call this Electronic music, but the technique used here, is of this group of Phase recordings. It is or was a phase work, but sometimes things got put in wrong box, or not moved to the correct one So, in looking for a home, it has the right catalogue number, and all the space it needs, in the shadow of the MCm, and an interesting if odd work in itself.
