"I believe to note a distinction on his work, as in various interests. Sometimes he deals with field recordings and at other times with objects and sounds. This new tape falls mostly in the latter category and a little bit in the first. I am not sure what method of operation Sulidae used here in doing his work, but I could easily believe he recorded the five pieces on his balcony or backyard, out in the open, as we hear traffic passing and occasional other outdoor sounds, but just as easily he could also record these sounds of wires, cans and other assorted found objects and mix them along with previous made recordings out on the streets of Sydney where he lives. He writes it favours ‘cubist and oblique audio architecture’, which is not something I easily can see in these pieces, but I enjoy the quiet yet direct approach of his music. Direct in that sense that there isn’t a lot of additional sound effects and quiet, well, because it has the usual Sulidae approach to a more poetic way of using sounds, be it field recordings or objects. You could wonder if the format of cassette does justice to such a delicate approach, but in case of doubt you can always refer to the download."
