HSAL #41 – “phases” (CASS/DIG)

HSAL #41Benjamin Mauch & Oahu, “phases

Benjamin Mauch & Todd Webb have both released music through HSAL before (HSAL #32 & #29, respectively). They have shared stages together, notably in 2017, when we had both of them perform on our electronic stage at that year’s Lynchstock Music Festival.

With the spirit of the classic “In The Fishtank” series in mind, we asked these two artists to collaborate on a stand-alone project. The result is “phases” – a six track affair where the lines between the artistic leanings of each artist are completely blurred. Ben Mauch’s oscillating swells are tastefully integrated with Todd Webb’s glitchy beeps & whirrs. Within the washes, subtle tensions rise then release from track to track.

The two-tone nature of the collaboration is matched by a black & white J-card. White ink spelling out the contents on a solid black shell.
