Three (squared)

Roland Pyle This album may well prove that Three (squared) rather than 42 is the answer to life, the universe and everything!

Now that I've listened to the whole of this fantastic album, I think that it is also a demonstration of Ashby's Law of Requisite Variety. The law states that
 in order to deal properly with the diversity of problems the world presents, you need to have a repertoire of responses which matches the variety of the problems you face.

Joseph Bagwell Fantastic low key ambient music (also great to listen to whilst playing Minecraft) Favorite track: Valley of Tears.

Scott The idea for the creative method for this album is interesting and I can't wait to immerse myself in it when the tape arrives!

Following the start of social restrictions last year, Alexander Caminada (aka Phonsonic), Andrew Heath and Simon McCorry found themselves considering new ways to collaborate that would circumvent the barriers placed upon everyone. Obviously, a system of file exchange would be used, and it became apparent that the idea of creating deliberate limitations with which to work within would be an interesting one to explore.

The three musicians would each in turn create three simple and short, audio files. They would do this three times. Each recording would be of one instrument (or non-instrument sometimes) and each one would be different. This would result in a total of 27 files. These were then divided up between them.

Alex, Andrew and Simon would then create three pieces from their allocation of audio files and each piece would only use three of the nine available. A further limitation was that only these recordings could be used, and each musician would only be allowed to use treatments and manipulations to complete each of the pieces.

Originally devised as a form of sonic and compositional experiment, this formula quickly became the defining factor and inspiration for driving the project forward and the resulting nine pieces are both diverse and yet inhabit their own cohesive sound world.
