What Is This Place? is a highly listenable experimental album, painted with broad strokes of tone and percolating with percussive detailed bits, plucked strings, found sound, and moody melodics that take you on a journey, an abstracted adventure in sound.

Set In Sand creates emotional and rambunctious organic electronic music, often sourcing from a variety of musical and real life sounds; saw blades and vacuum tubes, guitars as percussion, deconstructed music boxes, cello, xylophone, chopsticks on snare, a marching band, or a swarm of bees. The sounds are then loosely sculpted into a hybridization of melodic sound collage and dreamy deep-listening soundscapes.  A co-release with Abandon Building.
