    Collision/Detection is the second experimental audio project from Long Division with Remainders (LDWR) which sees invited artists submit audio clips into a central pot, which is then distributed around the group for them to do with as they see fit, resulting in a series of digital EPs released across 2012 and 2013. These EPs are now collected together for this set, presented in a bespoke package, letter pressed by Red Plate Press with artwork from Paul Loudon. The limited first edition also includes a bonus digital album containing new tracks by Collision/Detection contributors and the original sound clips which started the series. EPs come from Psychological Strategy Board (Jonny Mugwump and Time Attendant), West Norwood Cassette Library, The Lord, Hong Kong in the 60s, BLK TAG, Kemper Norton, The Doomed Bird of Providence, Isnaj Dui and Sone Institute. Praise for the Collision/Detection series: “This boldness in sound lends great results with a wild experimentalism, akin to a near-relative of Morton Feldman crossed with angry French synth-punks Metal Urbain… a distinct and compelling listening experience” – Fluid Radio on v1 by Psychological Strategy Board “two edgy electronic grooves bookended by glitched radiophonica… the juicy bits between jam on swinging House littered with quirky samples and drumfunked D&B rushes akin to Luke Vibert's Plug project” – Boomkat on v2 by West Norwood Cassette Library. “This is bonkers, and without doubt one of the best in this series so far… a wonderfully surreal jig-a-thon of chopped source materials… a peculiar beast, of bent, filtered and thoroughly jittery phonics…” – Rottenmeats on v3 by The Lord. “Their sound is a seductive wave of effervescent electronics, seductive harmonies and warm waves of sound. Fine pop songs etched with something altogether more abstract and interesting” – Bleep on v4 by Hong Kong in the 60s. “a hauntingly sick EP, perfect listening for the inevitable encroaching darkness of autumn” – Sounds XP on v5 by BLK TAG “a mossy, drizzling, ambient tech-folk masterpiece… It sounds like something genuinely new and inspired; a truly unmissable release” – Sounds XP on v6 by Kemper Norton. “I take these tunes as the elevation of the sea shanty to a new level, bringing a heightened sense of place and atmosphere” – The Underground of Happiness on v7 by The Doomed Bird of Providence. The artists of Collision/Detection Psychological Strategy Board – Collision/Detection v1 Psychological Strategy Board is a collaboration between artist and musician Paul Snowdon (Time Attendant) and broadcaster and record label manager Jonny Mugwump (Exotic Pylon), originally starting life as a commissioned mixtape / remix alias through the Front & Follow label, which slowly developed into a conceptual recording project.
