Many field recordings undertaken in these locations form the basis for textural drones and rhythms from which guitar loops and percussion can be blended. Similarly, these environmental experiences form much of the inspiration for Seaworthy's compositions and extend beyond the music into the aesthetic presentation of live visual projections and CD/vinyl packaging of their limited edition releases (often featuring silkscreened or lino printed designs on recycled cardboard, individually constructed sleeves). Seaworthy's debut album, it's humbling when two saints meet was recorded in a suburban lounge room on a cassette 4-track and despite the relatively lo-fi approach to the record's production, the results proved popular with local radio and received glowing reviews - providing the impetus to continue the project and pursue the possibilities of live performance. Seaworthy have been invited to perform with a wide range of Australian artists including Because of Ghosts, Charge Group, Rand & Holland, Triosk, This Is Your Captain Speaking, Sodastream and Grand Salvo, as well as international artists including Philip Jeck, Autistic Daughters, Taylor Deupree, Tim Hecker, Christopher Willits, Tujiko Noriko and Pajo. As well as many releasing limited edition material (CDRs & lathe-cut 7”s) themselves, Seaworthy have worked with many local and overseas labels including Feral Media (Australia), Black Lodge Audio (Australia), Celebrate Psi Phenomenon (New Zealand), Misplaced Music (United Kingdom), 555 (United Kingdom), Marino (United States) and Fat Cat (United Kingdom). http://www.myspace.com/backgroundfrequencies 2.
