descriptions, reviews, &c.

"Slip Sliding takes the listener on a musical ride aiming to evoke emotions and discussion about what is good, bad, different, indifferent, familiar, unfamiliar, beauty, and the unexplained.

This experimental project includes compositions by Rob Burke and group improvisations that are intensely expressive. The music traverses composition and improvisation with an underlying investigation into distortion. 'Check out' Ben Monder's use of varied and dense distortion and how Rob Burke interacts with his manipulation of harmonics in the sound ideas that are infused with the unique creativity of Tom Rainey. The distortion is further manifested with the post-editing of Ben Grayson: adding sounds and changing the sound-scape of many of the tracks."-from the liner notes
