Having been based on the troubled and doomed label, Artapes Productions, Monochrome has found a new home on Focused Silence.
Originally to have been released on a C60 cassette – this improvised guitar album consists of two 30 minute tracks.
Recorded: 2012-2013. Both tracks are one-take improvisations, with no overdubs. All composition & production is by Ade Bordicott. Originally to be released on C60, hence the chosen layout/structure of the tracks, Artapes changed directions when the MD realised the limits put on him by health. However, full health has been achieved and we are on for this.
"Well, what should you expect with this album? As any of the (growing) number of fans of the artist will know, Mutate creates and crafts sonic landscapes using only an electric guitar and effect pedals. The patience of the man to do so is a testament to the very oeuvre of avant-garde underground music. Mutate has a long history of performing around the UK and it is a pleasure to be working with him." - Andy Backhouse, Focused Silence.
