Frankenstein Sound Lab – Workfare = Slavery
From the mini-album Austerity (2014)
“The Plan Is Working…” from the forthcoming Frankenstein Sound Lab mini-album Austerity.
A sort of musique concrete piece built around voice samples and featuring your friends and mine David Camoron and Iain Drunken Smith.
I’m doing the final mixing on the other 3 tracks, and they should be available for free download in the near future.
Starlight Castle, Seaton Sluice, Northumberland
From the album Spirit Of Place (2014). Music generated from photographs of sites in North East England (ancient and modern), using the free i2sm programme (google it !) and mixed with ambient sound recorded at the sites, to create a representation of the spirit of the place.
