"Offering" CDR The concept behind most of the recordings on this full-length CD is the combination of guitar drones of varying tones and textures into a series of canon-based arrangements, exploring the dynamics resulting from the interplay of multiple layers of sound, both through composition and pure chance. This is also the first major Undecisive God release using mostly digital recording methods.

Undecisive God "Finnegans Wake" mini CD - 2010 was the year I read James Joyce’s Finnegans Wake. Questions about its ‘unreadability’ aside, I discovered a strange rhythm and musicality in the text. I found that this along with its sheer otherworldliness began to influence the way I thought (not as in ‘thought about things’, but the mechanics of thinking). And in particular, the way I listened. The book is mysterious and unknowable, so it seemed impossible to articulate its meaning and/or value by conventional methods. This CD is an attempt to represent what Finnegans Wake means to me through sound rather than words.

Undecisive God "RPMs 3-4" CD - "RPMs 3x3" and "RPMs 4" are the continuation of a series of compositions for turntables that began in 2008. This concept acts as a basic structure for exploration of different turntable settings, preparations and interactions. All four parts of the series released so far work primarily with layers of broken records/vinyl shards on each turntable, which creates a percussive yet chaotic effect as the tone arm skips from shard to shard, playing brief snatches of music from each. Two other tracks are included - another turntable piece and a collage of field recordings. Ltd edition 100 copies.

Clinton Green "Turntable At Dawn" CDR/digital - This unedited recording was made in Green’s backyard in January 2012. His instrument was an ‘acoustic turntable’, where objects and percussive instruments are placed on the turntable platter to create chaotic rhythms, in this case attempting to integrate with the ambient sound in the backyard (both natural and industrial).

Turntable At Dawn was originally released as a limited edition of 30 numbered CDRs (sold out). Each cover was unique, incorporating pressed flora and herbs from the recording location.

Clinton Green & Andrew McIntosh "Kasoundi" CD Collaborating originally on The Unnameable project (2002-5), Kasoundi sees the two artists combine their more contemporary interests in minimal, often-acoustic, noise improvisation. Exploring the natural and manipulated sonic properties of a variety of objects and machines (record player, tape deck, rocks, bowls, percussion instruments, kitchen utensils, aluminium foil, broken records), the duo weaves a naturalistic yet compelling series of improvisations that alternate between slow-build tension and luxuriating in these unique sonic textures.

Clinton Green & Andrew McIntosh "Stations" cassette/digital These recordings were made in preparation for the live performance of a piece of the same name, but in this excerpted/recording context it is the sound of a deep curiosity / fascination with the lives of objects.

Acoustic chamber concrète. Limited edition of 25 numbered copies.

Undecisive God "A Vinyl Construction" online EP Experiments with multiple turntables and prepared/broken records came to full fruition here with a release that poses questions both to the use of turntables as instruments and vinyl as a format. The music – crunchy multi-layered improvisations/processes that randomly sample small broken chunks from the original vinyl materials – was itself originally releasedon 7? vinyl (limited edition of 50 copies, now sold out), in handmade covers reconstructed from old record covers and broken vinyl shards; each cover was different, individually numbered and an interesting one-off creation in itself.
