Richard Scott – Several Circles (2 x Vinyl)
2 x 140g vinyl with A4 art insert print by John Powell-Jones and a Risographed Photo…
Recorded between 2013 and 2015 in both Manchester and Berlin, this vital new album is a combination of instant, improvised performances and highly structured acousmatic compositions that have been, in Richard’s own words, “microscopically edited, constructed, layered and mixed over many hours in the studio.” Far from being a dry, academic exercise, Richard’s music shower the ears with delicious and incessantly changing sound pools.
The album is a vibrant and exceptional portrait of Richard’s voice as a musician, unencumbered by restrictive themes or fixed compositional techniques, instead offering an all-encompassing view of his practices that, through their very intuition, sound cohesive. It’s an entry in to the already auteristic cannon of Cusp Editions that will surely be held in a pride of place.
