*Strictly limited to 100 individually packaged copies for the world, each cd comes inside a customised outer box and includes a modified hardback book cover holding each disc* Reference Library is a new series of releases from Cotton Goods, taking the bespoke packaging to even further heights of loveliness. We should really stress how gorgeous these look - the CD is attached to a hardback cover inside handmade boxes lined with rough grained tissue paper and attached info sleeve - a bespoke, genuine labour of love worthy of the delicate sounds within. 'An Inch Of Air' is a collaboration between The Humble Bee aka Craig Tattersall ov The Boats and The Remote Viewer, and Whisperer aka Emmanuel Witzhum, a respected Viola player and member of the Parisian Ensemble Intercontemporain. Together they've crafted a suite of gorgeous burred neo-classical strings and submerged electronics with the most endearingly shy and introverted manners. In just under an hour they conjure 12 tracks of intimately blissed, yet lonely and bleak moods, perpetually shifting focus under changing atmospheric weather systems to feel at the mercy of some unknown, overarching presence. From the Paavoharju-like small-sound blur of 'Tiniest Smile' to the ferric eroded drone topography of 'The Incredible Softness', into the anachronistic meld of folk strings and majestic miniature electronic symphony of 'Timelessness And Time', and the pastoral cadence of 'A Stranded Star', we're left heart in mouth and completely at their will. Beautiful material - no snoozing with this one.
