PA022, the first ever Paintings of Windows album and still one of my favorites from the entire PseudoArcana catalogue.
Paintings of Windows is Antony Milton's 'manipulated field recording' project and 'Canvas' is perhaps the most manipulated of the PoW records..
Canvas was recorded at night during light rain in a tent in the small coastal village of Paikakariki on the coast of the North Island of New Zealand. Quietly picking the odd note on a nylon string guitar Milton builds up pieces made from ghost melodies floating in an ambient field of the gentle patter of small rain on canvas.
No 'delay' as such was used on this record, delay like effects were created by copying and layering small fragments one at a time.
