Consistently Rest Around the Boxes (Cabinet Volta)
After the release of my last album A Rest Before the Walk; I was asked to contribute to a few projects in 2016. Whilst working on ideas for these projects I hit upon the idea that it would be good for me to pick one track off each of my four albums and mix all four tracks together. When I say mix I do not mean mix in any highly polished cross fade mix type way. I wanted to destroy these tracks. Slow them down, compress them distort them pile on the echo the reverb distort and reverse. I really just wanted to see what would happen to these tracks. I don't dislike any of these tracks it was purely a random selection, using dice. The tracks are Tom's Dark Science (Consistently Mediocre and Daydreams) The Woodcraft (Boxes Windows and Secret Hidey Holes) Future Usefulness and Happiness (Around the Folly and Downhill) Broken Folk (A Rest Before the Walk) I had been working on this idea for sometime when I got an email from Leigh Wright/Ephemeral Man asking me if I would like to contribute to Cabinet Volta Tumblr , I said yes, I realised that I had the perfect place for this track called Consistently Rest Around the Boxes to go. Happy listening.
