review...
"Four Million Years" is the closest Dave has come to the cosmic synth music of Klaus Schulze, here massed string-synthetics are to the fore, accompanied by gentle sequential patterns, rambling melodies and wafts of sound reverberating into the distance. Despite the Schulze-ian aura, this is unmistakably Prescott - lighter and more accessible than before, whilst still being mysterious and enigmatic.
Dave gave a bit of background on this one - ‘It essentially is three live performances at once. I took some ideas and recorded them, I played this back and "jammed" along with It, and repeated the process once more. For me, the essential ingredient is the use of digital delays (described previously). The way I use the delay lines necessitates using two channels at all times, so that multi-tracking is difficult. I do not overdub, nor do I like to. That is, I don’t do punch-ins, etc.’
