Accidental mic recording on dubious equipment
A restless reviewer speaks of ‘Seventh Past the Umbrella’ on Foxy Digitalis:
A video record of the Noise=Noise event at ]Performancespace[ on May 5th, shot by Ryan Jordan on his telephone.
An enormous line-up and the potential to last all night:

A nice review of “Seventh Past the Umbrella” by Steve of Dieter Muh:
Seventh Past the Umbrella
A new C35 by Aqua Dentata is now available from Beartown Records, entitled ‘Seventh Past the Umbrella’.
Two side-long pieces, recorded recently in a domestic setting.
“…A 35 minute study in finely sculpted drone collisions where titanic banks of harmonic amorphosis gently ascend mountains of deep, sine-wave drone cycles. Absorbing, and evocative – a tape that will whisk you away from the daily drudge to a utopia of abandoned car parks, empty arctic seascapes, and infinite desert horizons.
SEVENTH PAST THE UMBRELLA is the debut cassette from AQUA DENTATA – a paean to meditative drones, crawling key-changes and the engulfing serenity of electronic synthesis. Wave upon wave of electronic-flavoured aural massage crash upon the naked beach of your mind, 35 minutes of relief, disguised as beguiling sonic ambiguity.
Edition of 49. “Make your own mind up” artwork and formidable “on-shell” stickers.”
Aqua Dentata’s recent session for Imperial College Radio’s Big Racket show can now be streamed via their website. A direct link to the M3U file is here: www.icradio.com/replay/227055
The session begins at 1:31:34 for those short of time, and I am joined by host Iñigo on guitar at 1:57:27. Those who wish to listen to the entirety, please note that due to a technical error, the show does not begin on the stream until 28:42.
An account of the evening can be found on Iñigo’s blog (here), where he describes the session as “…like a sitar playing at the end of a tunnel in the dead of space, while you stand 100 metres away from its opening…”
To enhance your enjoyment of the session, I have included above a photo of the studio carpet to get lost in.
