Andrew Watson provides continuity and passage between two projects entitled Xenofonex and Capsule. With Dan Nyborg, Xenofonex is an exploration into the texture and polyrhythm perpetuated solely by the forced feedback of processors. Rhythms, used both as foundation and detail, traverse the idea of boundaries - lines dissipate in favour of forms. Incorporating guitarist Michaelangelo Fratino, Capsule's approach, on the other hand, combines evolving rhythms and melodies with ambient textures. The progression is slow and fluid; the immersion is complete.
