2012 release.?! Permissions is somewhat of a collaboration with Taylor Deupree, given that the 12k head is credited with “additional voices, post-production, edit, mix, and mastering.” The detail isn’t insignificant, either, as Permissions largely collapses whatever stylistic differences might normally separate 12k and Palace of Lights recordings.?! Arranged into concise song-like structures, the material exemplifies the concentration on fluttering micro-sound textures, electro-acoustic sounds, and field recordings that’s shared by the two creators and often captured on a typical 12k release.?! Listed sans titles on the CD cover as simply Permissions 01-16, the settings function like snapshots that cumulatively provide an in-depth portrait of Leimer’s range.?! The mood is generally laid-back, meditative, and explorative, but the elements drawn upon are not only pastoral in nature as industrial sounds surface, too.?!
