Vienna experimental platform Editions Mego welcome British composer Simon Fisher Turner to the label. The work of his four decades spanning career includes the soundtrack for David Lynch's Nadja, playing the clarinet in a sinfonia orchestra as well as countless solo releases under several different aliases, some of which endorsed by the likes of John Peel (King of Luxembourg), with the latest released on Mute.

Giraffe conflates electronic patterns with mysterious environmental noises. Utilising widely available technology - a portable hard disc recorder and smartphone - to capture these sonic environments, Turner adds a sense of haptic to his musical structures. Sharp, high-frequency noises evoke eeriness in the oscillating drone of 'Into Bush', while a metallic clacking beautifully disrupts the shimmering patterns of 'Hope Swims'. Vocal fragments of human mouth acrobatics, as applied on 'Clean Shapes' and 'Shine Up', have both terrifying and amusing effects. Turner's wizardry emerges from creating the tension between these poles.
