Phrase Velocity - [excerpt]

A new project assembled in the spirit of the festival's theme of "transculturalism", this set saw Autorickshaw tabla player Ed Hanley paired with synthologist Jonathan Adjemian in exploratory signal-processing mode. Combined with travel footage that Hanley shot while in India, this had a pleasingly drifting quality — a sense that the journey matters more than the destination.

Even better than my recording, Ed Hanley has prepared a video edit of the set that you can check out:
