Description

Scanner - Double Fold

Inspired by the controversial American book of the same title by Nicholson Baker, Double Fold is one extended elastic track focusing on a pulse,128 beats per minute. The book is an exploration of the dismantling of the greatest archives of our recorded heritage, paper as a resource now too fragile to store our history on.

Sourcing sounds from his own domestic tape archive and processing them digitally Scanner explores his own brittle sound diary, producing a series of contrasting moods that slip and slide around one another, yet never losing grip of the measure. Double Fold scatters beats into a warm seductive groove, hard digital lock grooves melding into rhythms that edge under the floorboards whilst pixellated abstraction tattoos it’s way across the surface.

Though a departure from the more abstractly invigorating experimental work that Scanner is recognised for, this release continues to sculpt a sound that twists state-of-the-art technology in gloriously unconventional ways.
