about

The debut album by Hull-based improvised ambient musician BLACKFACE aka Phill Wilson.

This album can be enjoyed on its own or played simultaneously with ADAPTER by MyOneManBand, also available through Adult Teeth.

In the artist's own words: "I have always had a fascination with the border where 'music' meets 'sound' and how the two distinctions can become close to irrelevant when they are positioned within certain contexts.

I chose to create a whole album that relied on one simple sound source (an open tuned electric guitar) to create a fixed timbre as a kind of audible 'horizon'. I then ran this simple cluster of notes into digital delays, reverbs, pitch shifters and other sound modifiers until I felt I was playing an atmosphere rather than a melody.

Each resulting live track also contains tiny fragments from my 'sound diaries', short recordings that I made over the year I spent living in Antwerp and travelling around Europe whilst writing this album. Through the combination of these elements I hope to have created something that will in years to come, continue to connect me to an important place and time in my life as well as offering an unobtrusive aural setting for other thoughts and experiments."
