about sounds of in between
Sounds Of In-Between is an exploration of the theme of timelessness and a sense of 'in-between' in sound and music. It brings together voice, instruments and field recordings in a timeless collage of music and imagery - each ‘piece’ blends seamlessly into the next in a continuous unfolding of musical sensation, texture and colour. It draws upon the idea of states of ‘in-between’ or liminal zones, where the listener may experience a sense of temporal suspension or timelessness.
Utilising the backdrop of the Blue Mountains as visual inspiration, Sounds Of In Between employs instrumentation and techniques that re-awaken an interest in the everyday phenomena of our natural environment. Although each track can be listened to independently, it is recommended to play the album in its entirety to maintain a sense of suspension over the duration of the recording.

WHAT THE CRITICS HAVE SAID

Paul Smith, Sydney Morning Herald
“‘Throughout, it’s obvious Long has a solid hold of his material and a focus to match, realised with such an eye for detail the whole thing just shimmers in your ears,”
Michael Smith, Drum Media
‘One minute you’re wondering what you’re going to have for lunch, the next your mind has been hijacked away to childhood imaginings of cities in the clouds... it’s transcendant stuff.’
Robyn Jarman, Stix Magazine
