In a 24/7 world, there is no greater challenge than "to be in command of one's own time". Is it true that the ability to download anything, at any moment, constitutes freedom? Has the '"value" of music, art and design been stripped bare? "I Google, therefore I am"... Touch Movements has been compiled over the course of three years. It is a response to many requests for Touch to publish a fuller account of Jon Wozencroft's photography for the cover art of the project. The book follows the music, which was compiled step-by-step, like a jigsaw; there was not an "open call" to the artists, rather a sequential development which gives the CD a special narrative quality. And since their last Touch 30 compilation in 2012 (TONE 033CD/LP), the accuracy of the music has grown and rises to the challenge of what sound can do to transform perceptions about the immediate emotion of musical work and its more difficult, longer term evolution. Following Halfway to White in 2015 (FOLIO 001BK), the Touch Folio series is a dedication to finding new ways of audiovisual publishing, somewhere between the twin peaks of a jewel-cased CD and a lavish box-set. The two elements of sound and the visual work in parallel to create the idea of an "Ear-book" whose interdependency reveals itself over time, and allows the richest of listening and viewing experiences. The music and the photography is fully annotated, alongside a rarely-seen manifesto by the surrealist film-maker Jan Svankmajer which celebrates the spirit of the creative act. Features: Mika Vainio, AER¸Bethan Kellough, Wire, Carl Michael Von Hausswolff, Chris Watson, Jana Winderen, Claire M Singer, Hildur Gudnadottir, Three 20, Philip Jeck, Simon Scott¸ Eleh, Russell Haswell, Heitor Alvelos, Johann Johannsson, Mark Van Hoen, Fennesz, Sohrab, Strafe FR, Jim O'Rourke, Situation Stabilised / BJ Nilsen, Peter Rehberg, and Oren Ambarchi. 79-minute CD; 76 pp book in full color. Art Direction, photography, text: Jon Wozencroft
