Happy to report I've contributed audio to this very thoughtfully composed CD, the proceeds of which will go to people whose livelihoods were affected by the unmitigated riots across London not so long ago. The audio is from one of my late journeys on boat and foot while working at the Venice Biennial this year.Harry Towell (Spheruleus) and Bartosz Dziadosz (Pleq) have come together to curate an album created "by the people, for the people", to raise funds for those that has been affected by the recent unrest that ravaged cities across the country.
The album, a statement and monument to collaboration and community, brings together works selected from short unedited recordings gleaned from artists, musicians and the general public across the globe.
Spheruleus and Pleq sensitively weave together an eclectic selection of field recordings, samples, spoken word pieces and instrumentation, creating momentous emotional landscapes for the listener, delicate, tender moments and most of all, a yearning tumult of haunting quietude: a silent, swaying breath.
All profits raised by sales of this album go towards assisting those that have lost their homes and livelihoods and to provideopportunities for philanthropy, creative expression and collaboration within local community projects.
