Revisiting the vessel of the decomposed improvisor, Gwilly enters the machine for Abstract Exhibitionism Volume Two, indulging in modulations of cassette tape spooling beyond control - all the manipulation and processing of sound happen at the very moment of capture creating a music that tempers the mood of a Jan Svankmajer short with the introduction of intoxicated household pets. As such, this is the definitive dictaphone album. As ever, entirely improvised and subject to very little editing.
