By cutting, pasting and processing pretty simple sketches and recontextualizing them into a hypnotic neo-surrealism, Deupree and Willits’ association brings a highly listenable, yet not easy form of ecstatic mood excursions standing halfway through pseudo-minimalist schemes and complex insights towards less intelligible subtleties. The well functioning relationship between “regular” instruments and computers provides several handfuls of electroacoustic codes sounding extremely brilliant; intense vibrations and deeply resonant buzzes mix with sequences of sophisticated coagulations and triggered electronics in a mini-maelstrom of sampled outbursts and delicate chimes. It doesn’t take long to be hooked – and when it all ends, you feel alone.
