In addition to our multi-contributor Random Spectacular printed journals, we'll be releasing a number of single-subject projects and publications in a variety of formats.
"Crystalline piano, clocks, voices, birdsong, water and resonating electronics create a spring warm sense of place and wonder"
“Blending dreamily ambient keyboard melodies with environmental evocations… it offers an attractive distillation of the installation experience. A marker too of rising levels of engagement with auditory histiography in public art”
Concrete Antenna, our third Random Spectacular project (RS003), is now available as a digital download and a deluxe 12” vinyl album package of new music (including a digital download), a set of art prints, a series of short essays and a specially created tide table created by Tommy Perman, Simon Kirby and Rob St. John inspired by their sound installation in the new landmark tower at Edinburgh Sculpture Workshop, loosely based on the urban history, architecture and ecology of Newhaven in North Edinburgh.
Using sparse piano, site-specific field recordings and archive sound samples, alongside a number of production techniques derived from the architecture of the tower itself, the trio have produced an album which skirts modern classical composition, warm organic drones and flickering minimal electronica.
