Edward Ruchalski is an American soundartist who had some releases on Humbug before and also contributed to some compilations, together with people like Toy Bizarre, Eric La Casa or MNortham.

"Refined Localities Part One" is a 20min long track using field recordings and samples of string and percussion motor instruments Edward builds himself. You could compare this piece to some tracks of his previous CDR "Moveable Sites", maybe more focused on the droney side, like "a densely layered cake of droning sounds, carefully layered upon each other" as Frans de Waard wrote about "Moveable Sites" in Vital Weekly...
