    Form Without Lines revisits a reoccurring idea on Pinecone Moonshine by combining Drone with Drum and Bass in way that percussion is interrupted or de-emphasized.

    The EP starts with a distinctly Indidjinous piece where his synths oscillate as if they are vibrating in a mechanical system. The rhythm is steady but the drums filter out, interrupt each other, take full stops to continuously adapt to bass sounds never holding one pattern.
    Parallel emphasizes a single breakbeat in A Dark Abyss. Ambients are more noise than tones and quite low in the mix. Clicks and distortion break up the Drum and Bass elements not allowing the drums to run un-modified for more than a few bars at a time.
    DYL's Horus Eye also has a steady, but slower rhythm driven by one dominant bass hit. Percussion between the downbeat is splintered with clicks and slight hints of Drum and Bass patterns that have been almost hidden in the mix. Subs and tones result from densely manipulated granular snippets of audio.
    K-Chaos uses the jazz double bass samples from Brief and a modulating synth to set the rhythm. Percussion is sparse and a bit unpredictable where and when it is triggered. Trumpet is used in the last two minutes where the piece is just the synth, a few wood clack sounds, and an inharmonic tone sustained through the end.
    Delay Technique returns to more familiar Drum and Bass themes with chopped and delayed Amen break samples. Additional funk samples seed inharmonic, pulsing sounds which also go through enough delays and gates that they blend together as cloudy, noisy drone.

    Released 20 August 2015.
    Mastered by Macc.
