S!!!'s first solo CD (closely following the massive Giladji LP on Giardia), Butterfly Dust is 3 pieces for organ, voice, woodwind, and digeridoo. The performances on Butterfly Dust are informed by a rare combination of virtuosity and exploratory improvisation different from Simon's equally revelatory computer music. In comparison with some prior performances (e.g. Simon’s startlingly skilled assault on a grand piano on Youngs/Wickham-Smith's Knish), BD is in a more minimal style, where sounds are given room to build up and establish a mood over the long term. This is particularly true of the long organ solo "Objects Appearing," where notes are slowly added to a drone over a period of several minutes, giving each newly introduced note a significant impact. Recorded in Australia.
