TATE AND LILES - Without Season

Format: CD-R
Label & Cat.Number: Fungal 059
Release Year: 2015
Note: small re-edition (90 copies only) of this long deleted collaboration album from 2005 (originally on Twenty Hertz): field recordings by DARREN TATE (wood-crunching, water, ether sounds, animals..) are contrasted by silent piano & accordeon drones... quite dark at times, and a bit of strange surrealism is evoked... but also lovely subtleness.. comes in standard jewel-case with full colour cover, professionally duplicated
Price (incl. 19% VAT): €10.00

More Info

"Feine Collaboration der ORA-Hälfte DARREN TATE mit dem aufsteigenden Brightoner ANDREW LILES. TATE hat wieder field recordings beigesteuert (z.B. Holz- oder Bootknirschen, leises Bachrauschen, Äthersounds, Vögel & andere Tiere, Laufgeräusche, Unterholz-knispern), die unverarbeitet im Mix auftauchen, während ruhige drones und Instrumentalklänge (Piano, Akkordeon) das ganze konstrastieren... WITHOUT SEASON klingt überwiegend getragen, dunkel und etwas bedrohlich & ist von einer gewissen surrealistischen Bizarrheit, irgendwas „stimmt hier nicht“ oder lauert im Geäst..." [Drone Rec. info 2005]

“There is a playful madness, an eccentricity running through the veins of this recording. Disembodied sounds flit around the margins of our consciousness, barely recognisable, separated from obvious meaning, snatches of the almost familiar. We’re nearly home, but not quite. It’s more dreamlike, a perverse version of home, where something isn’t quite right, something is out of place. Our sanity perhaps?
‘In that direction,’ the Cat said, waving its right paw round, ‘lives a Hatter: and in that direction,’ waving the other paw, ‘lives a March Hare. Visit either you like: they’re both mad.’
‘But I don’t want to go among mad people,’ Alice remarked.
‘Oh, you can’t help that,’ said the Cat: ‘we’re all mad here. I’m mad. You’re mad.’
‘How do you know I’m mad?’ said Alice.
‘You must be,’ said the Cat, ‘or you wouldn’t have come here.’
Quote from Alice In Wonderland by Lewis Carroll
Sonically flawless and wrapped in superb visuals, this is some of the strongest work from either artist.” [press release Twenty Hertz]
