Monos

2001
Anomalous Records

In many ways, Monos is an extension from an earlier outfit, Ora: the duo of Darren Tate and Colin Potter, both of whom were core to many Ora albums. Monos albums like 360º pick up on the evocative use of field recordings embraced by Ora and intensify that drive to locate sonorous sensuality in material drawn from the field. Indeed, here, Tate’s contribution is solely field recordings, while Potter contributes electronics and mixing; the two sometimes merge, but more often they play alongside each other in tandem: on the gorgeous “Clouds,” deep, thrumming buzz is echoed by nature’s windy blur.
