TORRIDON GATE - HOWLROUND
Suitable listening for this liminal season between Michaelmas and Hallowmass: the creaking of a garden gate:
“All of the music on this album was created from a single recording of a front garden gate on Torridon Road in Hither Green, London. These sounds were captured using a contact microphone and processed, looped and edited on three reel – to – reel tape machines with all electronic effects or artificial reverb strictly forbidden.”
Available in four editions: Dawn (illustrated here), Dusk, Day, Night.
Part of a project offering daily messages, reveries and artefacts from the spectral and pagan hinterlands of England:
A Year In The Country: An English idyll, a midnight sun…
“A Year In The Country is a year long journey of and searching for an expression of my underlying unsettledness to the English bucolic countryside dream… and wandering about and through the trails of things that have influenced, inspired and intrigued me along the way, which will quite possibly take in the further flung reaches of folk music, folklore and what has been labelled hauntological culture.”
