ryan There are uncountable hours of indistinguishable "drones" out there. "In Our Hiding Voice" contrasts with that bosonic hum, and makes of the format something with living compositional contour. And oh, those timbres! Leave your lazy gallons of reverb at home, this is sound for hungry ears by a guy paying uncommon attention to what's coming out of his guitar amp. Favorite track: String Trails.

In Our Hiding Voice is centered around the kind of listening you might engage in whilst hiding from something or someone, perhaps hiding in empty buildings, underground tunnels or dark rooms in abandoned houses... The initial intention was to create an album based around warm and fuzzy guitar tones but it was after Connor had watched Tarkovsky's 'Stalker', that he began to explore darker and scratchier territory. Connor kept returning to his imagined visuals of children playing hide and seek in a decayed world like that of 'Stalker' and it is through this inspiration that the murky textured drones on offer throughout this album were constructed.

The sounds that you hear are mainly derived from electric guitar takes and run through a Fender tube amp. Several hours of source recordings were eventually woven into a selection of sound collages built from moments of unintentional hum, noise between recordings and other raw material. These sounds were then processed by recording them onto magnetic tape and then looping them back through an amp. Sometimes, the sounds were recorded off a broken speaker on-board his reel-to-reel as Connor deliberately damaged the playhead with a magnet.
