Jim Denley and Kim Myhr met in Sydney in early 2007, and “Systems Realignment” was recorded six months later. Since then the duo has done numerous concerts in Europe and Australia. “Systems Realignment” is an attempt to rethink their fundamental musical methodology. There is an interest in materiality, almost at a primitive level, without being embarrassed to work with resulting harmonic structures. Frequency and rhythm is examined, but not within conventional grids. Perhaps the positivity of the result, comes from the project not rejecting other musics, but embracing elements from a vast range of sources ranging form traditional to contemporary and electronic music. The result is a lush and surprising flurry of acoustic, electronic and mechanical gestures.
