Limited clear colored vinyl LP pressing. Using a combination of hardware hacking and industrial manufacturing techniques, Scottish multi-talented artist Lomond Campbell builds his own unique instruments and devices for creating sound which he combines with modular synths, piano and voice. Lead single "Engineer Of Fear" marks the arrival of his LUP album, which came about when he was commissioned to build a custom tape-looper for King Creosote. It's a reflective, ambient slow burner with a pattern that build using synchronized gears. "I wanted the machine to embody the compositional ideas of the two esteemed New York avant-garde composers, William Basinski and Steve Reich," Campbell says. "It plays 10 second tape loops which 'disintegrate' over time as the tape passes near to a rotating magnetic disc. This rotating disc also provides a clock and drives two eccentric cams which sends out ever-shifting phase patterns. You can hook the machine up to a modular synthesiser and process the disintegrating tape loops while generating Reichian phase shifting patterns. I made an album doing just that..."
