Tarab explores re-contextualised collected sounds and tactile gestures formed into dynamic, psycho-geographical compositions inspired by discarded things, found things, crawling around in the dirt, junk, the ground, rocks, dust, wind, walking aimlessly, scratchy things, decay and most if not all the things he hears and sees. More than simply documenting a given site, tarab is interested in a direct engagement with our surrounds, teasing out half narratives, visceral sensation, false leads and heightened awareness.
In the forty minutes this record lasts there is much to be enjoyed. From obscured rumble of dirt found in the desert, to kicking around in an abandoned industrial site, wind over barren land, animal sounds and Tarab takes you on an audio journey through Australia I would think; there are no locations mentioned. In fact there is hardly any information at all on this record. That perhaps adds to the mystery of it all?
Tarab tells only the story he wants to tell and the rest remains a mystery. That makes most intriguing music, and ‘An Incomplete Yet Fixed Idea’ a great record – Vital Weekly
