Two previously unreleased live recordings between Zebra Mu and Tristan Burfield, captured during the hazy summer of 2019. Improvised noise manoeuvres expressing suburban abandonment and desolation, particularly felicitous during these weird times.
Officially sanctioned once again by the Norwich Noise Improvement District.
Put out on Quagga Curious Sounds as a download only release on my Bandcamp page!

A 50 minute recording documenting a 1960’s Stella Stellaphone ST470/00 reel-to-reel tape machine playing a 16 second loop of sounds derived from grinding/rubbing several sizeable flint nodules together. No effects pedals, digital processing or editing was utilised for this experimental harsh noise wall project. One of the flint nodules featured a naturally occurring hole which acted as a handy capstan for the magnetic tape to run through. Based on this recent short video work: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EYhyhcp2rSc&t=15s
B&W folded cover and insert is printed onto yellow paper, every CDr is rubber-stamped. A small segment of the original tape loop used in the recording is included with each copy. Released on Quagga Curious Sounds in an edition of 20 hand-numbered copies.

A Zebra Mu track is included on Antihistamine 2020: 19 Seconds of Sound, released by Histamine Tapes. As the title suggests each of the 77 tracks is a mere 19 seconds in length, perfect for those with short attention spans! Check it out and get downloading!
A single hydrophone / contact mic amplifies rain drops hitting the surface of an old splash cymbal attached to a block of wood, the resulting sounds I find quite calming! The hydrophone itself is played through a simple Marshall MS-4 Micro Stack, no effects pedals etc. were utilised.
An unprocessed field recording of scaffolders setting up opposite our house, listeners will encounter laddish banter between the workers, singing, radio and clatter of scaffolding poles/equipment/tools.
Ideally played in the background whilst going about your daily activities at home, this may provoke a vague feeling of annoyance (especially if you’re watching TV) or put you a little on edge. Lonely scaffolders stuck at home may find this recording beneficial.
Folded colour artwork is printed onto white paper and packaged in a clear plastic sleeve. Each copy includes a black and white paper insert with red text and labelled CDr with black and white artwork.
Edition of 16 hand-numbered copies, this can be purchased directly from me via PayPal or through Bandcamp:
