Consisting of 12 individually released CDs, this is, in part, a collection of unreleased material from one of the UK’s finest electronic experimentalists’ studio archives. A collaborator with similar sound envelope-pushers such as Nurse With Wound and The Hafler Trio, Liles’ music mixes minimalist drones with antique instrumentation and natural noise for a sonically surreal sound. This is dark ambience in its most eclectic form – sublime, sinister and visually spectacular.
