"Mutable Depths" is one twenty minute piece of abstract electronics that somehow do seem vaguely aquatic. It begins in near silence with only a few scrapings and squeaks of what seem like rocks and sea creatures, or possibly electronic devices dying a horriblly near inperceptible death. Both the atmosphere and recording quality are wonderfully lofi with the feel of being generated by hand rather than computer. The scrapings and sea beings continue with their noises for the first few minutes before quickly scurrying away at the approach of an immense cloud of indeterminate hissing that continues to build as further layers of droning noise approach behind it; each one more dense than the last. It is not long before the hissing cloud has completely engulfed the listening experience. It is here that his processing skills are evident; the wall of sound is mixed as if a sonic pressure builds inside your skull.
Shoemaker's drones have an aural shapeshifting ability in that they are difficult to pin down, and seem more like natural gas bursts, spewing fourth from within unseen depths of the planet, rather than something electronically generated. It is this quality that sets "Mutable Depths" apart and instills the work with more realism as if being being documented rather than created.
