suRRism-Phonoethics is proud to Mutate - 'Opaque Studies I'! Opaque Studies I comprises two single-take, improvised guitar soundscapes, and one piece built from layered manipulations of these recordings, plus other material from the same session. There are no overdubs. The intention behind these recordings was to find a way to build dense soundfields in a live context - something I'd previously found problematic, primarily in terms of PA feedback. Tracks 1 & 2 were recorded live at The Lab. Track 3 assembled at the same. All production, artwork, etc: MUTATE. Thanks to Jaan for releasing & to numerous others for listening.
