Resonant Spaces Release

Posted on 15 Sep 2017

Recordings from our 2006 Resonant Spaces tour with saxophonist John Butcher and sound artist Akio Suzuki have just been released on Ftarri Records! The tour set out to allow the audience to experience (and to listen to) the enviroment around them in different way. 

We travelled to a huge sea cave on the north coast, old ice houses, an underground reservoir, a mausoleum and a huge WW2 fuel storage tank on Hoy that has a 17 second decay. These sites allowed John, Akio (with his collection of self-made instruments including his ANALOPOS and others made from pebbles, glass plates, sponges, cardboard box, bamboo sticks and swizzle sticks) and the audiences to experience unique locations all with very highly distinctive acoustic characteristics. This record is a unique document of a unique set of performances, although no giraffes were present. 

Recorded by Ruari Cormack and mastered by John Butcher.
