about

Heretic Surface was created predominantly using instruments manipulated and built specifically for this album. The finished pieces were constructed out of improvised recordings using these instruments and layered live deteriorations of the resulting sessions over great stretches of gloam and blown-out headphones. During this process they were put down to quarter inch tape on top of themselves a few too many times and came spiralling out pretty much as you hear them.

Heretic Surface is meant to accompany its sister album, Cloudmarks, which was recorded during these same sessions. It is also intended to stand alone if that’s how it’s feeling. Thank you for letting your attention land here for awhile. Please enjoy.
