Terrestrial Tones are Eric Copeland and Dave Portner, two dedicated musicians who make their own sounds while on hiatus from their respective bands: Black Dice and Animal Collective.-Ç The Tones music was made to be played live through a huge stack of speakers yet listening to Oboroed in your own space is oddly relaxing as sound waves morph and sonic tapestries shift.-Ç This is noise but very deep noise minimally composed and direct sounding. Oboroed is slightly longer and more subdued, coming in almost like GAS and then shifting through different songs to a kaleidoscopic and epic effect. Circus Lives is more aggressive, particularly with the bass frequencies, with the cascading rhythms of the mid-range, and with the bold choice of samples. Oboroed / Circus Lives was recorded by the Tones at Terrestrial Home in November 2004 then mixed and mastered with Rusty Santos in January 2005. Although the lineage from Animal Collective and Black Dice can be faintly detected in the music, Oboroed / Circus Lives maps a different territory barely touched upon with their other bands. They present electronic music with a surprising new take.-Ç - UUnited Acoustic Recordings.
