(Evelyn)

Graham Williams, from Leeds (UK), uses many monikers for his musical output and Fencepost is one of them. A CD-EP, this short essay on homemade electroacoustics is very well conceived and exquisitely balanced; it all starts with a glitch-cum-silence track, but the best comes later: four more pieces where the main principle appears to reside under a contraction/expansion zip code. The graphics of sound are finely granular, the use of space just perfect; though most sources remain obscure, the tracks are instead consistently brilliant. It’s a good example of a right attitude to experimentation where there’s more substance than flashy tricks.
