Spheruleus is UK based artist Harry Towell, who resides in the Lincolnshire fens. He has been active in the experimental/sound design field since 2008 and his past material has been made available through labels such as Hibernate, Home Normal, Under The Spire and Time Released Sound. Harry also runs Audio Gourmet & Tessellate.
'Peripheres' is a series of short sketches rooted in lo-fi sound design and influenced by the fenland landscape in which the artist resides. Harry has coined the phrase 'periphere' to refer to the large array of small streams and dykes which cut through the vast and numerous fields of the Lincolnshire fens.
The music contained in Peripheres is born out of a desire to create shorter, more melodic structures and sees Spheruleus experimentating with rhythm in Electro Acoustic sound design. The tracks were created using deconstructed recordings that were chopped up and re-arranged as a sequence of one-shots. This includes recordings of acoustic instruments, lo-fi rhythms made from field recordings and dusty old vinyl samples. Through each 'Periphere' the soundtrack traverses endless flat landscapes as the widespread panoramic views unfold.
