Frame is the much anticipated follow up release to last year's debut Optimal.LP, a cd which caused quite a bit of critical stir as a very impressive and original work for a new artist. Dan Abrams (aka: Shuttle358) seamlessly blends stark textures/drones with digital disfunction. clicks, skips and tiny mechanised rhythms intertwine in hypnotic form that Abrams allows to evolve in a very organic way.

Frame picks up where Optimal.LP" left off. a bit more distant with excursions into deeper realms of Abrams' signature skittish minimalist rhythmic work.

Frame includes a video, shot by Abrams himself, in DVCAM for the title of the album. It is available on the cd in quicktime format as well as a separate high-res VHS release. The use of movement and abstracted forms along with a subtle color palatte of whites, blues and yellows is a perfect visual accompanyment to the fragile rhythms of the soundtrack.

Dan Abrams/Shuttle358:
"If you put an empty frame against a blank wall, you suddenly notice the the color, the patterns, the imperfections in the plaster. The frame is like a window of perception. It takes the wall outside time. The frame draws attention to what is within it - it magnifies it, you focus on it, it begins to symbolize the whole wall."
