Following up Periphery with In Between Words, Canadian experimental composer Christopher Bissonnette continued his obsession with incidental sound on his second record for Kranky. Slightly darker in tone than Periphery, In Between Words explores the sonic realities of life in an urban center. But this record is hardly about cacophony. Bissonnette makes silence his most effective instrument by giving each sound splash a near empty canvas on which to occur and dissipate.
