Walls of the Stream presents three recordings of impromptu HNW performance all of which was livestreamed in some fashion on the afternoon of Thursday 2nd April, 2020.

Most of the recordings are ultra-dynamic, moving from one wall texture to another with varying speed, the second test-run even includes a piercing high-end feedback section. Perhaps it was my given temperament at the time or perhaps the medium of livestreaming brings out a "restlessness" in any performer/artist. Personally, it just seemed natural, much of my usual HNW involves heavy re-listening and post-editing after spending a preliminary phase of live 'sounding out' which involves the kind of switching between textures that you see here, in many ways these recordings shine a light on my recording process and therefore what's presented here could be described as 'fetal' and incomplete.

Instagram live was held on my private account @shearman_ - while it is private I will accept practically any request that doesn't come off as a bot or suspicious for some other reason.
