Fovea Hex – Here Is Where We Used To Sing

The eagerly anticipated album from Fovea Hex, HERE IS WHERE WE USED TO SING has finally arrived and is now shipping from the Omnempathy Store…


Brainwashed say – “the more I listen to the album, the more I fall in love with it. Sublime”

Musique Machine say “With a microscopic attention to the qualities of every sound, each of the eleven tracks has a deep richness that almost overpowers… It binds so deftly the studied traditions of song craft with the free experimentation of sound art to make them seem like wholly natural ingredients of a new form” 5 stars

REMEMBER – the Special Edition of the release with a bonus disc, THREE BEAMS, featuring remixes by William Basinski, Colin Potter and Michael Begg is only available from Janet Records, Die Stadt, ICR and Omnempathy.

Fragile Pitches – Vital Weekly review

Frans de Waard gives a positive – though typically oblique – review of Fragile Pitches in  Vital Weekly…

“Slow, minimalist changes of glacier like moving masses. This is of course the kind of music that needs its time to develop. A great work indeed. Potter is one of the masters of the genre, and this release is easily one of his best.”

Fragile Pitches – 1st Review : 5*

The first review of the recent 2CD release, Fragile Pitches, by Colin Potter and Michael Begg has just appeared online at Musique Machine.

“Circular, tidal movements slowly change into intense, ringing carillon chords setting off the defensive trills and squawks of unknown creatures at night. Shimmering curtains of constantly moving timbres play the same note over avalanches that ultimately reveal a solemn waltz on the wind before it disappears along with all other reverberations into the cathedral’s interior, swallowing like a black hole.”

The full review, whcich was written by Russell Cuzner, can be read at this location:
