Album Notes
Recorded May 2011 – November 2012 in various venues near to Washington, DC, the fourth TL0741 release heightens the tension displayed in prior releases while offering intervals of ambient introspection. Reviewers of the third release, “Held To Account”, had this to say:

"TL0741 present “Held To Account”, ten improvised live tracks intended to be heard a high volume using electronic instruments as a way to remove harmony and rhythm. To a large extent they succeed with their purpose, although the human mind being what it is, you begin to find harmonies and rhythms buried in the sound, the brain filling in the gaps meaning each person interprets the pieces differently. However you hear it, the music is rich and fulfilling, each one similar yet individual, with Pat Gillis, the musician responsible, using the full sonic spectrum, the bass sounds being particularly effective to my ears, with “Understream”, “Coal Vermin” and “Inteference Pattern 1” winning the day for me. " - Simon Lewis, terrascope (dot) co (dot) uk

"The mix of lush ambient with noisy interruptions provide the foundation for these ten tracks, with some like “Coal Vermin” and “Rasl” using the noise to jarring effect. The drone is also present in the title track and on “Miasmanaut,” the latter of which arguable is the epitome of this sound. Also powerful and disturbing are “Caul” and the closer, “Altimiter.”
Held to Account builds off of Ligeti and Lustmord and takes the trip deeper and richer. This is a soundtrack for an astronaut floating away into eventual oblivion, but while the oxygen holds out, the experience is as awe-inspiring as it is terrifying. Frank Poole (2001), this record is for you. Gillis and his clutch of live and recorded sound evoke wonder and unease, a poetic ambient that deserves much love if you can get a hold of a copy." - Mike Wood, foxydigitalis (dot) com
