HALF MAKESHIFT "Aphotic Leech"
Utech Records [URCD005] $14 USD
"Aphotic Leech" is the first movement in a series of ever changing modes
which make up what Half Makeshift has slowly become. A bath of heavy drone
and bitter piano chords strewn over top of subtle glitch work and
manipulated percussion, Aphotic Leech trades malice for despair and shuns
any probable hope. Created in November of 2006 from austere piano pieces,
string fragments, a live percussion specimen and other various arrangements,
this piece grew to be much larger than originally intended through a series
of long manipulation and thought processes. It is a heavy of a different
kind which engulfs the body in a thick black sludge only to dissipate at
once, become a reborn substance and finally drain itself leaving a small
fragment lingering after it expires. Edition of 500.
