the second edition of jamie stewart’s monthly series arrived a couple of weeks ago, i needed a good amount of time to digest this one. this is a different experience than the previous one, which seemed to be mostly comprised of acoustic samples. this disc seems to be more like vinyl collage work, in the vein of christian marclay, with a large portion of the material coming from recordings of organs and sound effects. i thought that his last edition was about the silence, this one is more about the size of the sound. the last track is a sixteen minute battle between silence and organ blasts. it would be a great installation piece, it calls for loud amplification and good acoustics.
