Spheruleus :: Peripheres

SpheruleusPeripheres” ★ Eilean Rec. ★ Rel. 02 February 2015 ★ Art: Peter Nejedly

Peripheres‘ is a series of short sketches rooted in lo-fi sound design and influenced by the fenland landscape in which the artist resides.

The music contained in Peripheres is born out of a desire to create shorter, more melodic structures and sees Spheruleus experimentating with rhythm in Electro Acoustic sound design. The tracks were created using deconstructed recordings that were chopped up and re-arranged as a sequence of one-shots. This includes recordings of acoustic instruments, lo-fi rhythms made from field recordings and dusty old vinyl samples. Through each ‘Periphere’ the soundtrack traverses endless flat landscapes as the widespread panoramic views unfold.

Spheruleus is UK based artist Harry Towell, who resides in the Lincolnshire fens. He has been active in the experimental/sound design field since 2008 and his past material has been made available through labels such as Hibernate, Home Normal, Under The Spire and Time Released Sound. Harry also runs netlabel Audio Gourmet and limited edition CDr label Tessellate.

All sounds composed & recorded by Harry Towell between January 2014 and September 2014 in Bourne, Lincolnshire.

Enjoy Your Intermission

The story of a little drive-in, with a lot of hearts.

Longtime projectionist, Roger Babcock, has been threading film through the Hi-Way Drive-in’s projectors for more than 40 years. However, with Hollywood studios no longer offering film prints of their releases, Roger is faced with an ultimatum: upgrade all four of the Hi-Way’s 35mm film projectors to expensive digital systems, or close the gates which have so warmly welcomed moviegoers since 1960… for good.

Collapsing Architecture: Collage Works by Seth Clark

Seth Clark wuchs in Seekonk, Massachusetts auf und studierte an der Rhode Island School of Design in Providence, wo er seinen BFA in Grafikdesign erwarb. Fortan konzentrierte sich hauptsächlich auf Printdesign und alternative Typografie. Während dieser Zeit entdeckte er Kollagen. Seine Arbeiten, von denen hier eine kleine Auswahl zu sehen sind, fokusieren sich auf zusammenfallende Architektur, von Menschen geschaffene Strukturen, entworfen, um in Dauerhaftigkeit bestehen zu können, nun aber in sich selbst zusammenbrechen.

Seine Bilder werden im Rahmen eines ehrgeizigen Beschichtungsverfahren erstellt: Der Künstler benutzt gefundenes Papier, um den komplexen Verfall zu reflektieren und sobald dann eine dreidimensionale Grundlage erreicht wurde, werden verschiedene Mischtechniken zur Definition und zur Tiefe dieser Rohstoffe erbracht.
