"Another project born of the will of Frans de Waard and of his Bronbron. Encountering this time in the extrapool studios in Nijmegen, Holland, is the thirtieth prodigy of sound sculpture Ben Gwillam and the master of the art of ...tape recording Jason Zeh. Coaxing sounds from old magnetic tape cassettes is the sound source utilized by two musicians for their improvisations. After five minutes of mechanical noise and silence, a wretched drone takes over and proceeds intermittently creating for a short moment the effect of an incoming storm. Then, still more events: the needle of a turntable; the sound of dust; and other microearthquakes amplified as needed." Translated by Nathan Crook.
