'Jimmy Billingham's output as Venn Rain serves as an altar-ego to his Tidal project, utilizing melodic repetition and tape manipulation as the building blocks for his ethereal sound constructions. The pieces on "Serene Beam" are akin to being trapped in a singular moment that is frozen and played out in slow motion, harmonies unfolding at a glacial pace. Seconds turn to minutes as these songs become the sound of a perceived room, filling the space with an infinite moment that changes in slow gradients.
Limited to 100 cassettes with color labels, packaged in white cases with full-color, doublesided printing on 80# gloss stock.'
