"The duo of Dean King and Tomas Phillips came together in 2000 with the mere
intention of exploring a shared aesthetic. Their aim was the achievement of a balance
between digital and non-digital sound and a functional recognition of their differences
in terms of utility and signification. Whilst computer technology remains central to their work,
they make an effort to locate composition within a space of physicality. Hence the use of
acoustic instrumentation and field recordings gathered on the periphery of laptops, they
seek to foreground the act of listening in the slowly evolving tradition of microsound,
without precluding the possibility of active and engaged harmony."
