* Edition of 300 neon yellow vinyl * Adrian Corker’s bold, heavily textured score for Tin Star: Liverpool gets a limited release on 300 neon yellow vinyl. Working with a 12-piece string section as well as brass and percussion, Corker draws out a rich palette of volatile sonics Analogue tape processing help re-shape things further, slowing and stretching the sound giving rise to unusual shapes and colours. And woven amongst all this are field recordings by Corker and Chris Watson, recorded around Liverpool in 2019. As well as the field recordings, the ensembles were recorded in London and then replayed and rerecorded or ‘worldised’ (Walter Murch) in different buildings and outdoor locations in Liverpool adding new sound spaces onto the music.
This is the third and final chapter in the Tin Star story, and the third time Corker has worked with many of the same players, each time developing the language into new imaginings of the same core ideas. Performed by Orchestrate (Mica Levi/Bobby Krilc)
This is the first release of Constructive sister label to SN Variations.
Flip this over for two remixes of album cuts via Circle Traps and Richard Skelton. The remix of 'Changed' is a melodic and deep techno work out with hints of Jeff Mills. The version of 'Shifting Gears' is a spacious, orchestral soundscape befitting of a Sci-Fi soundtrack.
