Impulsive Habitat have produced a nice new cover for Estuary. It was a bit of an unexpectedly rushed release, filling in for some scheduled work that wasn't quite ready. Consequently the cover wasn't quite of the standard Impulsive Habitat usually aspire to. They've remedied the matter by coming up with this stunning image of an unearthly vista traversed by what might just be an extraterrestrial river.
Estuary will hopefully be included in a future framework radio programme broadcast in the UK on Sunday nights at 11pm on Resonance FM, the London radio station. They have the download in their posession. It's always interesting to hear how the tracks are blended together with other artists' work, making each broadcast a piece of original composition in its own right.
The Field Reporter is a new blog featuring reviews and essays on sound art. I've been invited to contribute, and so far I've written about Simon Whetham's excellent Cold Shoulder, a piece concerned with an industrialised area of Bristol, and Phonic Psychomimesis' audio exploration of the railway locomotive entitled Trainishness. Both these releases are free to download.
