New Zealand's Bill Wood and Jules Desmond, known for work with Birchville Cat Motel and Black Boned Angel, deliver "Deep space gloomp and wind-tortured drone-silence...Huge lungs of void cut up with diamonds of percussion and lone metal tone in classic globe-gobbling style."

"When I was very young, the old wooden telephone poles used to hum. If you put your ear against the pole the hum was more of a multi-layered "drone" with a myriad of different tones, all interacting with one another. I used to imagine I was hearing all the telephone conversations in the world, all at once. I still don't know what caused this, as it used to occur on calm days as much as on windy days. A lot of the 1/3 Octave Band work has simply been my trying to imitate that telephone pole sound."
