Vector, the new album by Jeremy Bible & Jason Henry, presents an epic 1 hour and 7 minute avant-garde sound experience. Vector unfolds through the amalgamation of a vivid palette of sounds placed delicately on a worn canvas, burnt and tattered around the edges. Piano and cello seep through soft blankets of distant voices, rhythmic crackling, and soft distortions. A thousand birds arise from pulsing tones against the occasional rumbling sine wave. A profound score from beginning to end intended for deep listening.

Review by Frans De Ward from Vital Weekly 638
Two new artists I think (with the amount of music arriving everyday one can't always be sure), this time from Ohio, are Jeremy Bible and Jason Henry, who are closely connected to probably their own label Experimedia (ok, I reviewed music by Bible before in Vital Weekly 586). Two nice packages (glossy fold out prints) hold two of their recent releases. From the website I gather they "seek to expose a synergetic relationship between real world found sounds, acoustic instrumentation, and electronic sound design" and more than once such terms as 'painting' and 'images' are used. The language used on the website might be a bit swollen, but these two men do a nice job at what they do. Hardly surprising by any account, as both of these discs contain music that could go down as 'experimental', 'ambient' or 'drone', or anything that is a combination of these words. There are large chunks of field recordings to be spotted around here, sometimes almost 'clean', but at other times highly processed. Some of the techniques involved sometimes are bit dull, like time stretching, but throughout I must admit they do a fine job. Listening to both in a row is perhaps a bit much, but I must say if I had to choose a favorite from these two, I think 'Shpwrck' would be it. It's a little more diverse in approach, with a more varying input in sounds, instruments and sound processing. Both dwell a bit too much on the use of reverb, but such is unfortunately a common place in this kind of music. Quite enjoyable late night music. (FdW)
