18/03/2013 ‘Sonic Architecture’ tracklist

Not just another show. Recorded live twice, the first time only to realise much to my despair that a previous studio occupant had turned the microphone off, so listeners were blessed to hear some delightful silence between tracks instead of the limited information I was providing, oblivious!
Last night, having successfully dodged the bombs of snow falling from  Brno’s laden roofs towards pedestrians, I was back at the studio to try to make amends. Eleven pieces composed about, or in response to, buildings, spaces, and other places, including two from the excellent Cafe Concrete project which took place in Plymouth (England)….

1)APPLEBLIM – GIRDER /from ‘Soundboy Punishments’/ Skull Disco 2007
2)MESA – MILLBAY GRAIN SILO /from ‘Cafe Concrete Plymouth City Project’/ CCPCP 2010

That beautiful, wistful piece by Leeds outfit Hood brought a show brimming with atmospheric tracks to an end for the second time, this time, microphone definitely ON, with an accompanying intro and farewell for another week. Which, after thanking Pino Montecalvo of Music a la Coque for the Nu Creative Methods album, I’ll do in written form again now –
until next time, wishing you many a sonic delight (including silence), S.
