"I kill a hound. I kill a small hound. I kill a deceitful hound. I kill a worm, wherein there is terror; I kill all his wicked brood. Seven angels from Paradise will help me, that I may do valiantly, and give no more time to the worm to live than while I recite this prayer." - Ancient Irish prayer.

smll hnd / dctfl hnd [for the great worm] is a re-release of an album I made in 2014. Now downloadable for a bargain price, and an additional bonus track (download only)!

Blurb from original release (Richard Anthony, Drone Warfare Tapes):

"It derives from a collection of sound games: Phil played with sounds ranging from hard drives, boilers, and old tracks obscured by stacked FX, fascinated by the details and various levels of sound processing. What results is a collection of static sound pieces and gorgeous ambient drones interrupted by discordant industrial clangs and radio interference akin to Ian Martin’s Mechanical Rain. smll hnd / dctfl hnd could almost be an alternate soundtrack to Jonathan Glazer’s Under The Skin: it’s the sound of 21st century existence; alienated and frozen, yet luminous and thriving in liminal spaces."

Review, Tiny Mix Tapes:
"this tape tears at the very fabric...as if to say its 50 copies are truly 5 million. All those zeroes buzzing and clawing among the stacked sounds of lives being lead outside the metropolitan. The static of hard wired electricity navigating empty fields and lonely roadways; the longing of distant lovers across the world; the sine waves of incomplete thoughts feelings fighting each other over which shall prevail."
