about

// A comprehensive list of every possible combination of atoms in the universe
Shortwave radio / microKORG
Originally recorded for The Dark Outside's Epping Forest event, June 2019, and broadcast to possibly no-one.

// Your ladybugs cannot reproduce due to anomalies
Aulos 205 soprano recorder

// Nothing was done, and nothing seemed capable of being done
Processed tape loops extracted from a batch of car boot sale tape reels. Title taken from Moby Dick by Herman Melville.

// I hope you have a lovely day, farmer
I truly do. Lyrics by Idris, vocals by Simon. Rhythm found on an old tape reel.

// Largest burdens laid on smallest asses: best offices to most ignorant men
Shortwave radio / e-bowed acoustic guitar / church choir

// Train of troubles from sparrow's vengeance
Shortwave radio / no-input mixing desk / toy snare drum

// Taking away the control we've always had and giving it to the wrong people
Guitar / bowed kannel / microKORG
Fuck Brexit and everyone who still wants it. They're either evil, stupid, or both.

// Guaranteed mainstream chart hit
d-lusion Drumstation / brass band / microKORG

// Planning to fail
Vocodered field recordings / scanned images processed as audio / tapes / chime bars / granular synthesis.
Adapted from material originally produced for TQ Zine's Covering The Covers project (chosen cover: PLAN)
