Label: 20 City

"New Zealand sound artist Richard Francis (aka Eso Steel), is the third artist released on cmr and the first 3⿝ CD from the label. Richard has been involved with experimental music since 1996 when he began his first solo excursions (combining tape looped instrumentation with field recordings) and played in a guitar improvisation group with Birchville Cat Motels Campbell Kneale, called Small Blue Torch. His sound making since then has explored different techniques of CD sampling and abstraction, with a focus on electroacoustic collection and abstraction/manipulation of field recordings from various natural and mechanical sound sources. He has released sound works on labels such as Last Visible Dog, USA; Drone Records, Germany; Stateart, Germany; Absurd, Greece, with numerous releases on his own labels 20city and CMR, and has toured extensively in Japan, New Zealand, and most recently the West Coast of the US. Three Tracks (co-released by CMR, New Zealand and Stateart, Germany) contains three compositions recorded mid to late 2001 in Japan (where Richard formally resided) and mixed in mid 2002 in New Zealand. Using contact and stereo microphones, field audio material was gathered from organic and mechanical sources, found in both interior and exterior locations in and around Tokyo. Richard uses the subtle elements of these recordings (quiet electrical hums and crackle, amplified ambient near silences, minute occurrences) and carefully abstracts and arranges them into texturally detailed, engaging compositions. Three Tracks sits nicely in Richards catalogue of audio manipulation, following a well received 7⿝ (under his moniker Eso Steel) on Drone Records, and an LP on 20city." - 20 City.
