RR: This new set of duo improvisations marks the second meeting of composer and electronic musician Adrian Corker (SN Variations) and multi-instrumentalist Jack Wyllie (Portico Quartet, Szun Waves).Wyllie is best known for the ornate melodicism of his work with Portico Quartet and the more recent project Szun Waves â€“ an ambient improvisation trio with Luke Abbott (Border Community) and Laurence Pike (PVT). While, Corker recently provided the soundtracks to Rowan Joffe's Tin Star with Tim Roth and The Have-Nots, the second film by German director/cinematographer Florian Hoffmeister.
The pair first meet in 2013, when they collaborated on Corker's 2013 album Raise, the pair reconvened for an open-ended series of encounters spread over eighteen months, replacing the piano used on their previous outing with a pair of 60s audio oscillators. The resulting recordings explore a very different sound palette to their first encounter: an expansive, stormy confluence of Wyllie's trademark lyricism and Corker's coarse-ground atmospherics.
