Released worldwide through Bristol/Berlin experimental music label Subtext Recordings, “Clear Stones” exists within a mysterious, misty liminal zone.
Informed by Māori sound artist Rob Thorne (Ngāti Tumutumu)’s engagement with Taonga pūoro (traditional Māori instruments) and Christchurch-raised electronic music composer Fis’ musical explorations of the relationships between man, nature, and technology, “Clear Stones” is a dense and powerful dialogue where the duo find common ground between their respective musical worlds.
Rob Thorne and Fis began working towards this album in Berlin in 2016, around the time they performed together at CTM Festival. Since then, they’ve toured through Europe as a duo.
