James Murray – Floods
Every copy of Floods includes a signed insert and comes in a custom designed 4-panel recycled card sleeve. Everything has been sourced as ecologically responsibly as possible here in the UK. Sleeve, insert and disc are all individually rubber-stamped with James’ original artwork and each package is carefully assembled by hand.
On the flood plain where James Murray grew up, twin rivers rose each winter fed by rainfall from nearby Welsh mountains. Breaking their banks they swept over pastures and hedgerows, tore at the fabric of the land and isolated remote villages. It was here, in a makeshift studio on high ground, that James began to explore sound using scavenged instruments and homemade electronics.
Floods returns to that landscape; an acknowledgment and celebration of the destructive and regenerative power of the waters. It is also an attempt by the artist to reconcile with his personal floods, those mental waters that rise to submerge the will, that can at times be opposed and must at others be allowed to overwhelm.
