This is the second half of the two-volume set Assembled Landscapes, by SEAS - the duo of David Tagg and Brian Grainger. Where the first volume focused on Brian's collages of field recordings, textural grit, white noise and thin walls of effects processing, this stark second volume is much more minimal, centering around David's experiments with white noise, tape loops, analog delays and field recordings. Everything contained in these two volumes represents both a stripped-down "behind the scenes" listen of SEAS and SEAS 2, as well as an accurate portrait of the exact atmospheres the band aims to create in equal measure with the electronic side of their sound. These recordings were raw, unrestrained and in some ways, never meant to be heard in their naked forms, which the band now feels is a move well worth documenting, and hopefully an interesting insight into how SEAS create their music.
