It’s great to be working again with the humble 3.5″ floppy disk, this new offering has an epic 21 minute recording crammed into its tiny 1.44mb capacity!
The piece in question is a straightforward field recording captured in what was the lower dungeon cells of the Norwich Castle Museum & Art Gallery. A relatively quiet recording to begin with becomes practically inaudible due to the extreme file compression enabling it to fit on the disk. Accidentally a walkie talkie was left near the recorder so there are erratic bursts of murky (and creepy) chatter between museum staff. Occasionally you can almost hear the water dripping from the ceiling onto the cold stone floor too….
Each recycled black floppy disk features a B&W sticker printed onto red paper. Every copy is packaged in a rubber-stamped brown paper A5 envelope that includes a folded B&W A4 insert printed onto either pink or yellow paper. A small zip lock bag containing dust and debris from the dungeon cells comes with every copy: this is to enhance your listening experience.
This floppy disk is self-released in an edition of 10 hand-numbered copies, this can be purchased directly from me:
