"The title refers to that certain timbral or spatial or acoustic property that makes you notice a sound. I record all the sounds I use, both in my studio and in the field and all in M/S Stereo. I listen for that bit of new information in the sound, that uniqueness, that thing that made me turn my head and push record. That’s the sound I use. Sound is an energy field that I’ve been immersed in and worked in my whole life. There are always surprises and ways to treat the ear to new experiences and I try to find them in the real sounds of my world."
All sounds recorded by John Wiggins
Mixed at Wonderland Sound
Mastered by Thomas Dimuzio at GENCH Studios

No Thing was a group of three artists who performed in the Washington DC area
between 1989 and 1992.
Arthur Harrison - vocals & electronics
Jack Hertz - electronics & percussion
Rupert Chappelle - electronics
The trio performed live improvised sound fused with elements of avant garde, classical, futurism, and popular culture.
We, No Thing, were a late 80s trio that formed our sets around the cassette tape. Everything, even live shows were done to tape. The release is all transfers from the original analog cassettes. We performed often locally, but published very little. We have just released a cache of recordings for people to hear.
The album is available now on CDR (actually a factory made data DVD which includes 5+ hours of music plus bonus materials) and download from Acousmatique Recordings at Bandcamp.
