appliance's james brooks explores the power of minimalism via layered, repetitive electric guitar & creates enthralling, warm, evocative instrumentals.

developed from an interest in the former roman roads that lay just short walk from his hackney home, these mesmerising compositions are designed to respond to the individuality of these iconic symbols of communication & conquest. looping & gradually constructing beautiful soundscapes from individual guitar lines, the results evoke something intricate yet minimalist in the vein of conrad schnitzler, cluster & mark mcguire. "ancient byways inspire blissful, motorik trip" 4/5 - mojo, "continues to track the same ambient textured signposts favoured by Brian Eno & Robert Fripp on their 'No Pussyfooting' collaboration" - godisintheuniverse.
