001 stasis duo hammer and tongs adam sussmann & matthew earle emptied samplers improvisation recorded at the royal derby, melbourne 2nd april 2002

In their live improvisations Adam Sussmann . and Matthew Earle take metaphorical tongs to the emptied-out insides of samplers, twisting sinewaves into thin, piercing sheets and disintegrating clusters. This set skirts around the periphery of hearing, tense atmospheres stretched between high whines and low power hums. This isn't blank tinnitus sinecore, though, it's a subtler construction of delicate broken gestures, twitches, flecks, gently stretched noisebursts and the occasional placid, glassy bleep which has somehow slipped through intact.
