the impossible flower: roots and fruits

webzine, italy, september 2006

This album was recorded between 2000 and 2004, when TIF was just a solo project by Andrew David Daly (Gareth Dickson joined in 2004). Crackling processed piano, small clusters of unrecognizable instruments, reverse damaged guitar debris and a subtle sense of melody are the main ingredients for this album.

The second track is called "The Jig" and features an unprocessed acoustic guitar plucking which is now and then penetrated by glitchy loops. "Honey and Bees" is my personal favourite here, adding some catchy female vocals to different layers of gentle backwards sounds. Can't really wait to see where things will go from here.
