Named for the scientific terms that define the three methods of heat transfer, Conduction. Convection. Radiation. is the third edition in the Music Fellowship?1;s Triptych Series, which combines EP-length recordings from three like-minded bands on a single CD. Electronic, minimalist, and post-rock music is much maligned for being "cold," implying the style of composition is more rooted in technique and complexity than the heart. Conduction. Convection. Radiation combines three artists who destroy that stereotype. 1 Mile North is Jon Hills on guitar and Mark Bajuk on synthesizers. Hills' ability to shape subtle melodies out of abstract structures blends beautifully with Bajuk?1;s masterful playing of a diverse collection of analogue synthesizers. Colophon is the solo project of Tarentel?1;s Jefre Cantu-Ledesma. Colophon?1;s music builds off Cantu?1;s droning guitar work in Tarentel, but deconstructs it, leaving only the bare essence. The Wind-Up Bird is Joe Grimm sometimes accompanied by Jeff Smith. On their 2nd album, Whips, on the Music Fellowship, Grimm used his Powerbook, guitar, vocals, violin, and horns to musically interpret a post-breakup voicemail message, creating a luxuriant dark dream and a revelatory song suite.
