i don’t have much to say about what are the roots that clutch, aside from that old cliché, ‘let the sounds speak for themselves’. Around 1996, McGinley adopted the moniker Murmer for his compositional work; and though his work often steps into the quieter realm of sound construction, much of his field recordings and resultant compositions privilege interference and disturbances that occur within any given sound ecology. Even the two unprocessed recordings of the album are impossibly complex in their accretions of sound. McGinley’s composed pieces embrace lithe, mysterious drones whose mossy, damp atmosphere perfectly situate with tactile crunches, tactile events, and signal noise generation.

Album: What are the Roots that Clutch. Label: Helen Scarsdale. I bet, however, that we aren’t supposed to read too deeply into the connection between The Waste Land and What are the Roots that Clutch, Patrick McGinley’s latest work under the Murmer guise. When considered out of its original poetic context, the title is an all-too-perfect image of McGinley’s music, which is primarily composed of the field recordings he captures in various locales around the world
The verb clutch makes the roots seem hostile, threatening. The word rubbish is also very negative. And yet these lines make me think about how very persistent life is, how things can grow in the most hostile of environments. The narrator seems almost threatened by this persistent quality of life. The imagery makes me think of Christ as the Root of Jesse as well as the recent Gospel passage about Christ the Vine: I am the vine, you are the branches, remain in me. We need roots, we yearn for roots.
