"Science does not consist in the description of the accidents of [form], but in specifying, by the description of these forms, the more or less close relationship they have with each other."

"...all the [work] serves only to demonstrate that there is only variety everywhere they suppose uniformity...that in nature there is nothing absolute, nothing perfectly regular."

Muzo Habit is a sound collage which is characterized by a complex series of relationships between objects, orientation, and origin. It was composed in tandem in the winter of 2020 through a series of source exchanges between two dedicated field recordists.

Icy stretches of electroacoustic improvisation are obscured by opaque layers of ambient tape music, minimal electronics, and environmental ephemera. Jagged remnants of setting, of sentiment, of story, remain in fleeting acoustic cues like these, but are quickly exchanged, one after the other, creating a variegated, shimmering polymorphic piece.



released April 2, 2021

Knowth is a transatlantic field recording project that operates from both Cork, Ireland and Chicago, Illinois. All sounds were recorded or created by Nicholas Maloney and Andy Klingensmith. All tracks were composed by the authors with exchanged and/or arranged materials.
