Ross Baker “Periphery” (TR024), Released September 1, 2014 in a Guided Products recycled card sleeve with attached art, handstamped cd-r and a random series of card. Limited edition of 50.
“Periphery” is the follow up to “Two Suns Were Visible in The Sky” on the Flaming Pines label and the recent Middlemarch “Wolf Hall” release on Time Released Sound. Described by Ross as “a mini album containing material recorded at the same time as “Two Suns…” which were deemed too personal or too claustrophobic to fit that record’s vast scope”.
Haruki is the pseudonym of composer/sonic artist Boris Snauwaert from Ghent, Belgium, who creates sonic environments through the precise, meditated amalgamation of a diverse variety of sounds, both musical and non-musical. In any given track Haruki combines any or all sound sources; field recordings, acoustic instruments, acoustic noises, found samples, sampled instruments and so on.
Bridge Carols is the meeting of two artists with unique timeless approaches to music. Neo-Americana folk singer Laura Gibson is gifted with a soft and singular voice (not unlike the voices of Josephine Foster and Joanna Newsom) and writes songs that could date back a century or foretell a future rural life. Electronician Ethan Rose is vested in antiquated instruments and technologies – a sonic recycler who, out of the old, has been creating a new form of ambient music.
Talkingmakesnosense is Dominic Dixon of Glasgow who has been making music in one form or another since he was a child. Most recently, he’s been releasing records on the now sadly defunct Benbecula Records, and now a new album on Rural Colours.
Coruscates consists of four long-form tracks, each tipping past the ten-minute mark.
An edition of 100, CD and cover packaged in a translucent envelope.
