Clear Horizon is a duo made up of Jessica Bailiff and David Pearce.
Jessica Bailiff has recorded and released three solo recordings on kranky. �David Pearce lives the U.K. and spent most of the 90s in a band whose name he'd just as soon not mention. �If the words "rural psychedelia" mean anything to you; you can probably figure out what band. �Or, as Jon Dale wrote in Signal to Noise about the debut Clear Horizon release; "If the album in toto brings a few memory shards forward in your mind, so be it."
Clear Horizon was recorded over the course of two years, as Bailiff and Pearce exchanged tapes across the Atlantic. �Each member contributed vocals and guitars and layers of effects, piano and percussion gradually accumulated during the recording process. �The debut, self-titled CD/LP was released in November, 2003. �Since then Bailiff and Pearce have met in England to record face-to-face. �The process, so far, has involved songwriting and improvisation.
