Gyratory System is Andrew Blick (production, trumpet, sound treatments), Robin Blick (reeds, brass), Laurie Waller (drums, drones) and James Weaver (bass, synths). The London based quartet formed from the discontinued proclamations of One More Grain and their debut album 'The Sound-Board Breathes' arrived through Angular Recording Corporation (October 2009). Gyratory System gradually emerged from a succession of improvisational trumpet projects and collaborations that led the late John Peel to joke that he was going to have Blick barred from the BBC's Maida Vale studios as he'd featured on so many sessions. In demand for a method of playing trumpet through effects that still remains a rare art. Blick pursued the Gyratory System project as he developed a recording and production technique he dubs The Process.

 The album title "the sound board breathes" is taken from a line in Milton's Paradise Lost," says Blick by way of introducing The Process. "One of the themes in Paradise Lost is the tension between free will and pre-determination.

Gyratory System collaborators (including Blick's father Robin on a range of woodwind instruments) then begin to improvise over this fixed core. Gyratory System sit on a chrome orb contemplating from a distance those outside the modern classical realm who've influenced The Process: 23 Skidoo and A Certain Ratio) as well as more contemporary twists of Caribou, Holy Fuck, Kieran Hebden and his Four Tet work, along with Animal Collective "for what they do with live instruments where you can't tell what the instruments are". 
RCRD LBL praised Gyratory System for their "infinite aural comfort. Four-to-the-floor but oddly unhinged.the light-year become bored with relic of an general area marching band”. In the realm of the typeface impacting on paper, Vice have called Gyratory System "Liquid ecstasy”, while NME compared Barons Court Turret to Kraftwerk, The Normal and Art Of Noise while describing it as "lurchy, lovely thing."
