Aquifers album cover

Michael Prime


One of the many members of improvising outfit Morphogenesis, Michael Prime is a quiet yet determined presence in the British underground. His recorded works all share a furious focus; describing himself as a ‘sound ecologist’, he tends toward intensive exploration of set parameters, whether he’s working with objects or, more often, natural phenomena. Released on iconic noise imprint RRR, Aquifers is a great introduction to Prime’s world. Drawing from various sources – a metal storage rack; environmental sounds, traffic, a toilet; a water machine - Prime rearranges the world outside of your head with thorough-going intensity. This is a most dislocating experience.
