Working Title is the debut recording by Phil Maguire and James L Malone. Three pieces embrace accident, malfunction, and feedback. Timbres converge and depart; pitch/noise; sound/unsound; success/failure.
Guitar vs. computer. Improvisations edited for length. Recorded in summer 2017.
Confront Collectors Series 83.
"Malone’s non-guitar and Maguire’s computer continue to spew out skeins of wriggling electro-acoustic sound from then on. Across three tracks, their particulate scrapes and impatient whimpers enact a biomechanical interaction that seems independent of any overarching consciousness. It’s all smoke and mirrors, of course – we know Maguire and Malone are onsite making these sounds, but it’s all too easy to edit out the authorial presences and tumble into the (apparently) self-organizing hubbub, as if we’d plunged an endoscopy camera into a teardrop to take a gander at the microbial frenzy kicking off within."
