‘Extensity’ follows the epic ‘Sound-Hydra’ in Kayn's catalogue, and continues that piece's re-exploration of the composer’s bountiful experiments at the Institute of Sonology in the 1970s and early 1980s. While the scale and source material are reminiscent of the notorious extended works of that period such as ’Infra’ and ‘Tektra’, looking back on his sound palette from the vantage point of 2001 evidently found Kayn keen to emphasise contrast over stasis. Amid the signature breathtaking sweeps and near-perpetual pitch shifts, we hear jump cuts, drop outs, and abrupt dynamic shifts settle into new, compelling features of the landscape.
