  • Record/Vinyl + Digital Album

    A deluxe 12” vinyl album package plus a set of art prints, a series of short essays and a specially created tide table created by Tommy Perman, Simon Kirby and Rob St. John, inspired by their sound installation in the new landmark tower at Edinburgh Sculpture Workshop which ran from March 2015 until June 2016, loosely based on the urban history, architecture and ecology of Newhaven in North Edinburgh.

    Using sparse piano, site-specific field recordings and archive sound samples, alongside a number of production techniques derived from the architecture of the tower itself, the trio have produced an album which skirts modern classical composition, warm organic drones and flickering minimal electronica.

    Our deluxe package includes: a 12” vinyl album (and digital download); art prints by Tommy; a series of short essays and a specially designed tide table.

    The album’s packaging has been crafted from exquisite materials with as much attention to detail as the music. The outer sleeve has a triangular die-cut aperture allowing you to choose your own cover by selecting and rotating the enclosed artworks.

    "Crystalline piano, clocks, voices, birdsong, water and resonating electronics create a spring warm sense of place and wonder" MOJO Magazine

    “Blending dreamily ambient keyboard melodies with environmental evocations… it offers an attractive distillation of the installation experience. A marker too of rising levels of engagement with auditory histiography in public art” WIRE Magazine

    "Alongside sounds derived from the structure itself the trio seamlessly blend in piano, brass, children at play, birdsong and a bouncing pingpong ball in a quietly affecting sculpture in sound." THE QUIETUS

    "Without a shadow of a doubt, Concrete Antenna is one of our records of the year" CAUGHT BY THE RIVER

    "This combination of artistic packaging, informative essay and evocative recording is a credit to all of the people involved, from musicians to designers. Even without the visuals, the music impresses; “Church Bells” is especially lovely." A CLOSER LISTEN
