Touch



'Below Sea Level' by Simon Scott







UK arts organisation/label Touch have released 'Below Sea Level' and the download includes the rare 76 page journal that is long out of physical print!

The Touch version, on their new imprint TOUCHLINE, has been mastered by Taylor Deupree.

12k, the label run by Deupree from Pound Ridge US, released the limited edition journal featuring Scott's essay on listening, sound ecology and the draining of The Fens, and CD in 2012.

Reviews:
  • CHAIN D.L.K. (.COM)

    "A sort of osmosis between acousmatic pastorale and lively natural elements."
  • TEXTURA (.ORG)

    "He has granted access to what for many will be a new locale and provided enlightenment about its dramatic history."
  • AMBIENT EXOTICA (.COM)

    "Scott’s devotion to this project results in a fantastic journey through the Fenlands of England."
  • WAJOBU (.COM)

    "Simon Scott has given us a great gift—finding music in nature."
  • SKELETON CREW QUARTERLY (BLOG)

    "In some cases, Scott seems to be playing for the present moment, merely coexisting with a complicated patch of nature. In its most satisfying moments, however, Below Sea Level sounds like a poignant farewell."
  • TITLE (DE)

    "Warmen Klängen und unaufdringlichen Bewegungen."
  • PLAYGROUNDMAG (.NET)

    "Es un disco que suena como una gran burbuja, una burbuja fina que puede estallar en cualquier momento."
  • A CLOSER LISTEN (.COM)

    "Below Sea Level is more than music, more than sound; it’s a quiet revolution."
  • HAWAI (PT)

    "The sound of rushing coastline washed sand regions without relief, ossified in time."

  • MUSIQUE MACHINE (.COM)

    "This sense of the past threads through 'Below Sea Level' to remind of the qualities of Super 8 footage."
I'll be touring North America in April (please see previous post for details).
