The newest installment of the Relay project comes from irish music artist Thomas Haugh aka Hulk, and has just gone up on our relay site.
A beautiful response to Loscil’s The Sleep MachineThomas says of his peice; ‘As a continuation of the subject of sleep I tried to create something which represents the process of dreaming, a kind of release to the tension Jimmy and Scott created. If their music focused on the sound of places where we sleep or the transition into sleep from a conscious state then my piece is roughly intended as a kind of musical visitation, something which happens in the mind after we fall to sleep, — like a distant radio transmission rising out of silence and filling the void for just a short time.’
