Lynchian mechanical, metallic noise abounds, and any semblance of organic is suffocated - wrapped in plastic and re-figured as something not of this world.
Written and recorded almost entirely on modular synths at his home studio (NURSE), Jamie Stewart enlisted the production of ambient drone pioneer Lawrence English to bring his creation to life.
Eugene Robinson of Oxbow wrote this piece as an accompaniment and response to An Aggressive, Chain Smoking Alcoholic:

With the baking and a dozen other things, without a point in the larger schema of finitude. A schema that was set against a kitchen of whites and wooden floors and the nervous skittle of the tops of tails that could be seen right above the windowsill, as her cats roamed.
Want is confusing. Want is as confusing as that butcher block full of knives. Want is not at all the word I would use to describe getting there earlier than I had expected and seeing what I saw. I knocked. I entered. This is not about murder but this is most certainly about death. And Aristotle's unmoved mover who, unseen while I was seeing, set it all adrift.
