Note: the return of ROBERT HAMPSONs project, known for beautiful guitar-dronescapes, now as a collaboration with STEPHAN MATHIEU => working with concrete objects (of unknown source), instruments (guitar, piano, 'ebowed phonoharp'), percussion, analog synth & Farfisa organ, they create somnambulant experimental sound-figures, slowly moving through imaginable spaces... really intoxicating! great comeback !

More Info

"There has been a recent surge in activity from Robert Hampson, with all manner of solo recordings and performances popping up. Its only logical that he reactivates his beloved Main project. As we all know, Main laid the foundations during the 1990s for much of love of abstract guitar treatments in electronic music throughout the 2000s.
Hampson has teamed up with Stephan Mathieu to create a stunning new album. On Ablation, Mathieu adds extra tonal colour and an obscure rhythmic palette to Hampsons exacting treatments and detailed use of layered concrte sounds to create an emotionally charged and fascinating work.
Old fans of Main will not be disappointed, and neither will new followers of experimental audio.
Packaged with images by Grebo Gray with layout by Dave Coppenhall, and expertly mastered and cut by Rashad Becker." [label info]
