The Curfew Recordings were made at a disused industrial site on the river Tyne in 1984 and feature John Smith (then publisher of Interchange magazine), Sean Dower (ex Death Magazine 52 & later of Bow Gamelan Ensemble) And John Mylotte (of the band Metgumnebone). The recordings were made inside a 10m tall and 26m wide, steel-plated cylindrical, structure, once used for bitumen storage. The instrumentation is acoustic and the recordings are unprocessed (the space however adds a remarkable reverb). Instrumentation included: bull roarers, spirit whistles, human thy-bone trumpet,chimes, pipes, gongs, flutes, drums, projectiles, scraped and bowed objects and other materials (glass, metal, bones and wood).This is the first digital transfer of the original tapes to become available.
