While being best known for creating deeply immersive live psychoacoustic experiences, the London based Pataphysical have allowed us to use 'Periphera', the fruits of their debut studio work, as the label's eighth musical oblation. It would have been an excercise in futility to try and replicate the immediacy of their live performances on this record, but we feel that across these 8 disparate tracks inner worlds have been rendered real. Through the careful positioning of field recordings and the creation of soundscapes somewhat reminiscent of heyday Mille Plateau the group have held fast to a desire to craft involved and captivating synthesis.

Nine tracks which defy Linnaean nomenclature; hurtling between vellum-thin ambient cuts and cataclysmic, Vorticist assemblies; heliotropic vocal samples, woven delicately between feldspathic percs. Sideman Deejay
