Julian Doyle, Faversham, 2010


Shopping is elusive composer Julian Doyle’s canto
to honour the loop. On each of the tracks here,
Doyle works up short, bar-long cells of chirping
synth and analogue percussion, passes them
through a simple chain of filters and lets them
ride. Loops are like drones: get them right and
you’ve got a rich sonic environment that focuses
the listener on tiny changes in texture. The key,
Doyle suggests, is rhythm: put the bar line where
the ear least expects it and your loop will keep
morphing, or seeming to, without you needing
to lift a finger. On the B side, DJ Shelley Parker
gives Doyle a sullen, dubbed-out remix: the loops
are screwed to a sizzurp crawl, the synths are
voided of pitch, reduced to Pole-style percussive
crackle and moored in cavernous bass.
