below is a review of the groups performance in the Wire from a concert at Cafe Oto in August 2020
Really pleased to say this new album of vocal improvisations is out! It was recorded as part of my research into performing recordings in marginal, inbetween areas around Manchester over the past two years. Big thanks goes to everyone who came on singing walks with me inside the long dank tunnel under the M60 motorway which you can see in the picture. Click here to see a full gallery of images I’ve taken documenting the area round Junction 7 and the some action shots from performances. This is the same tunnel I worked in when I made Murky Sovereignty with Otto Willberg for Taku Roku last year. You can consider the two pieces close relations I guess. The release itself is available as a download, CD and a one off photobook and CD. All purchaseable via the bandcamp link below.
