Liquid Transmitter

Half-seen limbs plot paths across the night sky – presences made known solely by the patterns in their wake.

THIS, AND THE OTHER SPACE

Jamie Drouin | Lance Austin Olsen

Examining the fracturing of memory and the creation of multiple realities, or spaces, as details obscure and the remnants eventually form their own parallel narratives.

MEANDER – Liquid Transmitter

“The sense of perspective in all six tracks is palpable; it’s not so much like looking at a lava lamp as actually floating within one, perceiving the bobbing pitch motes up close and from a distance. As such, in both a literal and a figurative sense, Meander is extraordinarily immersive, as well as being some of the most beautiful ambient i’ve heard in a very long time.” – Simon Cummings | 5:4

THE FRENCH DROP

Jamie Drouin | Lance Austin Olsen

The Hieronymus Bosch painting known as The Conjurer (c.1475–1505) has held a constant position in the back of my consciousness for several weeks – being emblematic of the dangerous political world we find ourselves in. It represents the ease, and apparent willingness, of people to repeatedly fall for the simple distraction techniques of the travelling charlatan, including the oldest slight-of-hand illusion of them all: Le Tourniquet, or The French Drop.
