Pausal / Volume Flow

Volume Flow is the latest album from UK based duo Pausal, the audio and visual art project of Alex Smalley and Simon Bainton. It follows previous releases on labels such as Barge Recordings, Students of Decay, Own Records, Dronarivm and Infraction. Hibernate fans will be familiar with Alex’s solo work as Olan Mill and Simon’s 2013 album Visiting Tides. After exploring more experimental ideas with their last album Avifaunal (Dronarivm), the duo decided to return to their ambient roots to produce several lengthy improvised pieces which were later post-produced and edited down to form the tracks as they are now.

Alex and Simon are both deeply inspired by nature and the environment and aim to create sounds that resonate with the listener and form a similar picture in their minds. Volume Flow is an attempt to express their appreciation for all biological forms of nature with the word “Volume” in the title referring as much to the liquid state as it does to audio levels. The cover artwork is a piece from German artist Susanne Steinmann called “Rosa Landschaft” which seemed appropriate for the album and reminded the duo of a place close to home…
