'Incommensurable Magnitudes' is composed
of 26 tracks totalling 24 hours in length. Ideally this
album would have consisted of 24 tracks each an hour long
but due to the limitations of the amount of data that can
be uploaded to this download site, each track is 59 minutes
long. To complete the full 24 hour cycle 2 shorter tracks
of 12 minutes in length ('Tea Break' and 'Up the Wooden
Hill') have been added.
The reason for 'Incommensurable Magnitudes' coming
into being is a further extension of my musical research
and philosophical musings on concepts of time, already supported
and theorised with my '...Through Time' quartet of releases.
These notions are my own and are NOT based on any intellectual
'reason', academic discipline or mathematical 'truth'. They
are personal experiments with sound, sonic structures and
clichés that (for me) represent ideas about time
travel, memory, illusions of time, astral travel, oblivion,
OOBE, nostalgia, death, space travel, science fiction, science
fact, marine biology, delirium, human anatomy, non-existence,
sleep, hallucinations, suspended animation, hibernation,
black holes, dark matter, vacuums, anti-matter, eternity,
infinity and.... beyond.
Releasing the recording in this digital form is
the perfect format for the piece to be listened to, utilised,
experimented with and enjoyed. 'Incommensurable Magnitudes'
can be streamed from your digital player in its entirety
from beginning to end with no breaks! It can be played as
a purely functional piece of music, to while away the hours
as you go about your daily routine... a faint drone in the
background or a suffocating, all encompassing sonic assault.
Equally it can be utilised as an aid to spend your evenings
'researching' a field of your choosing. The tracks can be
played randomly or in order, none of the titles relate to
any given time of day. Use, abuse and enjoy the music in
any way you see fit and hopefully some of you will take
on the marathon challenge of listening to it all in one
day, a non-stop cycle of 24 hours.
