The first five releases explore the power of location sound as a trigger for emotion and memory, the music within the everyday sounds around us, and how musique concrète tape techniques – transforming concrete sounds from the real world – are being used today. These albums are complementary in their modernism – united as products of particular places and times:

Souvenirs Cachés / Innermost is a split LP from two leading voices in electroacoustic music — Beatriz Ferreyra and Natasha Barrett. It would be hard to find a better-suited combination of contemporary acousmatica on one record.

Huellas Entreveradas is a collection of three unreleased contemporary works that reveal how Beatriz Ferreyra continues to create compelling sounds from classic musique concrète techniques.

Thames is a collection of field recordings by The London Sound Survey following the river from central London to its estuary, seemingly taking us back in time to a quieter place, where nature reasserts itself over man-made sounds.

Factitious Airs (Electronic Music) is the first solo album by veteran composer & broadcaster Robert Worby: a visceral collection of contemporary electronic music, in which tiny fragments of other musics are fractured, manipulated, combined and rearranged.

Iain Chambers’ The Eccentric Press comprises two symphonies of industrial and domestic technology, composed solely from recordings by the pan-EU Sounds of Changes project.
