aspects of the morning | Helen Frosi

aspects of the morning is a pillow book to the river lea; a spatial poem beginning at dawn and following the river’s course until noon, portraying as a splay of seemingly disassociated words on the page, helen’s deep acoustic and ecological sensibility. Ecological in its writing - multilayered and many-voiced - the open lattice of the text acts as a perfume, encouraging the reader to linger and drift through an alternative time; sound and light.

extended transmissions | ada

'...on initial listens extended transmissions would appear to document a séance in the teardrop of a fully submerged submarine manned by a crew of hexapods. but repeat plays tease out the finer details, opening up spaces in ada’s electro-magnetic tapestries for the ears to ease into the velvet hypnosis of burr and drift ...it’s the hypothetical sound of finnish experimentalists pan sonic transferring their studio to the outside world only to watch it slowly disappear under a blanket of moss, lichen and rare species of sea lavender.' - Spencer Grady (Record Collector magazine)

Limited edition of 25
