Lawrence English is an artist, composer, engineer, writer, and curator based in Brisbane, Australia. Some of his later work (such as the acclaimed Wilderness of Mirrors) is heavier and noisier, expressing bleakness, desolation, and loneliness through waves of distortion. In 2010, English collaborated with Minamo for an album titled A Path Less Traveled (Room40), and Touch released his single Incongruous Harmonies as part of their 7" series. The Peregrine, inspired by . Baker's novel of the same name, appeared on Experimedia in 2011. A collaboration with Stephen Vitiello titled Acute Inbetweens was released by Crónica that year. In 2012, English released For/Not for John Cage on Richard Chartier's Line label.

Even though the whole project doesn't manages the virtuosity and versatility as a majestic album effectively does, the overall feeling was succesfully positive on me. 2mo. 80. To document his breathtaking travels to Patagonia and Antarctica, the Australian, sound artist chooses to frame his experiences only through amplified recordings of weather - primarily powerful storms of whirling wind, rain, and ice occasionally clanging against sheet metal. A risky success of an effort thanks to how English's expressionistic and candid approach towards these recordings create.
