Past Inside The Present is pleased to welcome Pausal to the PITP roster! Expect a more detailed release announcement in the near future.
Pausal is the audio and visual art project of Alex Smalley and Simon Bainton, both from Hampshire, UK. Active since 2005, they have released their music on labels such as Barge Recordings, Students of Decay, Own Records, Dronarivm and Infraction. Individually, Alex has released several works under his Olan Mill guise and Simon has released on Hibernate Records.
The duo's music has been described as "billowing, vaporous, and cloud-like", "a shimmering haze of humid ambience and sparkling field recordings", "a colourful, yet ghostly, world of slow-moving, rejuvenating sound". Their live shows are a complete immersive experience, utilizing large scale visuals created by the band. They have performed across the UK and in Europe supporting artists such as Grouper, Mountains, Stars of the Lid, Chihei Hatakeyama and Greg Haines.
