“These two have been performing together in the Sydney experimental sound scene for a number of years. This year they featured in ABCTV's"Set". Here they present 4 tracks, kept 1-4.

Peter's work here revolves around probing the innards of ageing audio equipment with their own self-generated feedback, filling the components to saturation point, flooding the otherwise orderly signal paths with puddles of random activity. His role is basically riding that valve between the internal processes and the resulting overflow of sound; spilling from the speakers, but frying in the air.

Jim here uses alto sax, but stripped of references to saxophony. He particle-i-zes his sounds, often focussing on 'fibrillations' idiosyncratic to his horn. His sounds are then perceived simultaneously as waves and tiny bits. When tones are employed, they break up into fibrillation or he employs beating vocalized interferences. There are no 'notes' here; no lines.
