Confluence

Released

John Grzinich and Seth Nehil spent several years sharing sounds with each other between Eastern Europe and the United States to yield Confluence. Through their meticulous attention to texture and arrangement, they put field recordings and percussive contacts into an incubation chamber to see what they might (re)produce. Whereas “Pneuma” and “Lohme,” both topping the 22-minute mark, build a slow pathos of self-awareness, droning as if it were the only way to seek forgiveness, “The Distant Edge” between them delicately assaults with its cacophony of car horns like the fears of every commuter retaliating in a hellish tidal wave.
