Inspired by the theme of psychogeography, 'Block Boundaries' fuses acoustic instrumentation with electronic and processed material, taking the listener on a hallucinogenic Ballardian journey through the thrumming urban activity of New York, Amsterdam and London. Where previous material was often pastoral, 'Block Boundaries' moves boldly towards a more urban sound, all the time retaining Teague's recognisable minimalist themes.
