Mark Harris :: Points of Departure: Works 2004 – 2009 (Enpeg)

Points Of Departure shifts gracefully and begins to envelop itself in a mass of low-pressure gliding through acres of open terrain.

Mark Harris

Mark Harris‘ thirty-nine minute selection of phases gathers subterranean debris, fragile ambiences and breezy cyclones on Points Of Departure: Works 2004-2009. These phases — as described via press excerpt — “of unequal length are looped so that on repetition they slip out of sync with each other creating a constantly changing audio field.” The uneven pulses of light continually float and are (seemingly) devoid of gravity creating for an elevated stream of consciousness as minutes tick away without notice.

Ideally titled, Points Of Departure shifts gracefully and begins to envelop itself in a mass of low-pressure gliding through acres of open terrain. The audible configurations (transformed from wire-frames and dust particles) visually depict this albums universal direction. Sealed in an immersive time capsule composed of seven parts, Mark Harris has essentially creates a fluid soundtrack of faded memories buried deep in our psyche. Not too dark in its aural construct, Points Of Departure is a thorough reflection of glistened emotion that consistently opens new plateaus on each rotation. Recalling Roderick Julian Modell’s 1999 release of The Autonomous Music Project, albeit in a more subdued texture, Points Of Departure leaves the listener to disseminate how tempered audio strands will interact with each other the next time you dive into its all-encompassing wall of sound. Listen carefully, then try again.

Mark Harris :: Points of Departure: Works 2004 – 2009 is available on Enpeg January 24, 2012. [Release page]

Mark Harris’ An Idea of north/Learning to walk is also forthcoming for n5MD.
