Fergus Kelly: Fugitive Pitch
Inches And Degrees
Vectors And Reservoirs
Brought To Nought
Created from recordings made in cellars underneath Henrietta Street in Dublin which have been extensively edited and processed, featuring Fergus Kelly and David Lacey improvising with assorted metals, plastics and drums.
"Fugitive Pitch utilizes a longer period to better develop the notion (begun with Swarf), this time showing the consequence of improvisations (by Kelly and David Lacey) with metals, plastic and drum parts in cellars located under Dublin's Henrietta Street. The raw materials were processed and seamed after being recorded, thus maintaining the structural coherence that had already been detected in the shorter disc.
Needless to say, the level of gratification is increased by the larger resonance deriving from the setting in which this was realized; still, although the record is not lacking in fascinating roars and rumbles, with an even more attentive ear to the enhancement of long-drawn-out upper partials, not too much of truly groundbreaking can be reported. There's no doubt about Kelly's seriousness of intents though, his sound world definitely able to sustain our curiosity for the whole extent of the program and, at the very least, constituting a pleasant soundtrack for this early morning."
