Notes

fragile.flicker.fragment is a deeply moving album. The fruit of an expert musician who
has both a technical and intuitive grasp on sound design and composition. Every frequency
is beautifully catered for in these tracks of shimmering acousmatic beauty and deeply
resonating foundations. Each layer occupying its own place whilst building the overall
acoustic experience. Adkins’ quest to reconcile abstract electronic sound material and
melody is explored in this album. This is further strengthened by the inherent visual
quality to the tracks, reflecting the relationship between his work and paintings by Pip
Dickens (with whom he had begun to collaborate with).
