'Transcollaboration' is the result of five years of tape swapping between American James Sidlo and Welshman David Cooper Orton. With a common interest in looping techniques, the somewhat unimaginative song titles and faux-air mail packaging cover art belie a unity of great talents. The duo recognise old favourites Brian Eno and Robert Fripp as key influences but in reality some of their material is comparable to much more recent material. The opening three-part suite of 'Thing2', 'Thing3' and 'Thing4' captures the spirit of Yellow6 to a fine art through their ambient, moving textures. 'Delayed In Traffic' brilliantly distorts a fragile bassline in all directions which the likes of Rothko would be proud of. 'East Of Ealing's use of Indian rhythms bears evidence of their wider view of music as does the breakbeat and guitar twang mix of 'Between Breaks'. Rounded off by the two part title track - a stunning work of shimmering ambient effects and guitar work - there's little to fault here. At long last, proof that long distance relationships are worth pursuing, in the musical sense at least.
