*300 copies limited edition* The Evelyn Tables, the oldest known anatomical preparations in Europe, dating to 1646, are an early yet humbling insight into the networks within the human body, a network within natural networks that govern the physical constraints of the human material existence. Observing them from the outside, they are uncannily reminiscent of a floral network, yet at the same time strangely familliar. The soundscapes of this work attempt to convey these ideas viscerally, through a human body manifesting them. A meditation on the shared realm of existence. The Evelyn Tables are the oldest known anatomical preparations in Europe. Each one of the Evelyn tables is approximately 1.9 m in height, and 77 cm wide. Each one provides an insight into human physiology. Indeed, they display four different parts of the human body – including arteries, nerves, veins – all meticulously dissected from a human specimen, then affixed to a pine wooden board, and preserved from the passing centuries.

"These are four long tracks of textural ambient drone/noise, all produced by electric and acoustic guitars, and inspired by the anatomical preparations, The Evelyn Tables - four of the oldest known human anatomical preparations kept in the Royal College of Surgeons in London". - Aidan Baker
