"As Surgeon he spent two decades releasing highly regarded techno LPs - now Anthony Child has trawled the archives for this more experimental EP on NNA Tapes. Split into two 20-minute monoliths, ‘Part One’ moves from swirling, rotor-like synths to into petrified drone, while ‘Part Two’ drips with spooky dub techno noises as it edges into a grumbling labyrinth. Forget Surgeon - on this release, the man’s a straight conjuror."

"NNA is honored to be releasing the latest full-length solo recording from Anthony Child, UK electronic music legend perhaps best known for his forward-thinking techno production as Surgeon. A native of Northamptonshire England, Child has been at the helm as a DJ, writer, and producer of electronic music for nearly 20 years, creating works for reputable labels such as Counterbalance, Tresor, and Downwards. Aside from dancefloor-commanding techno, Anthony has also been creating a private collection of tone-based experimental works over the years, much of which have become the backbone for his latest solo album. “The Space Between People And Things” finds Child revisiting his collection of unreleased experimental studies from the last 16 years, collaging them into an entirely new framework. Using a sound palette reminiscent to his techno works, Child focuses in on the molecules within the sonic textures and frequencies, delicately emphasizing the negative space that surrounds them. These sounds are then intensified to form vast new worlds, enveloping the listener with bright, crystalline detail and clarity. These two side-long pieces seem to exist and not exist simultaneously, filling the listening space as an almost physical presence, to a point where they blend harmoniously with the air that surrounds you. The brainchild of intense focus and exploration, this record serves as an artifact that gives the listener a very personal glimpse into the mind of one of electronic music’s most creative producers. According to Child himself, this record “consists of location recordings, tonal experiments, and thought-forms from many different positions in space and time. It is the sound of the space between people and things.”

I wonder if the album's title is a reference or a quote from Coil's The Dreamer Is Still Asleep ?
