"Sex Dreams Of The I-Ching started out as six love songs with
strange fragmented structures that had titles inspired by readings from
the I-Ching. I didn't know what to do with them, but kept returning to
them over and over, they had an uncanny quality whilst being totally
dissonant and broken. One day I found some recordings I made on a
4-track years ago with a WEM Copycat - mostly my vocalisations looped
endlessly - and out of curiosity played some whilst playing the love
songs in the background. That's more or less how it began. A fortnight
later all six songs morphed themselves into drones and then, with some
minor embellishments, unfolding melodies, the titles magically fitting
the new music. Sumetha and James added their parts and the album was
done, no mixing required. As a listener you may find this album is
perfect for playing in noisy environments." Terence J McGaughey, London,
27th September 2012.
Biography: Millimetre is Terence J McGaughey who has made
critically-praised radical pop music with this moniker since 2004.
Millimetre has released four albums - "Love Won Out" (2005), "Obsidian"
(2007), "Heliography" (2009), "13 Homes" (2011) all on Orectic Records.
The sixth Millimetre album, "Discreet Cathexis", will be released in
Boomkat (UK) – Sublime ambient/drone-pop rituals from Terence J
McGaughey's Millimetre - tipped for fans of Coil, Grouper or MSOTT. The
Tapeworm has a habit of rooting out gold from the electronic sub-loam
and 'Sex Dreams Of The I Ching' is a total nugget. It's the first we've
ever heard from Millimetre, and certainly won't be the last, drawing
together ghostly vocal glossolalia, opiated eastern drone from harmonium
and ebow-ed guitar, plus morphing monotron washes in a manner that
reminds us of some all time favourites, yet is clearly guided by a lone,
individual chamber spirit. It's surely one of The Tapeworm's most
enchanting releases and strongly recommended. Be quick, we can't see
this hanging around long.
