The first of a 4 part series entitled ‘Follow Suit’ will be released tomorrow. Themed around a deck of cards, each part will be released on cassette and will come with one suit of cards, all housed in a playing cards style box. So for any completists among you, you’ll have a full deck if you collect all 4. If you aren’t yet familiar with our artefacts and objects our usual merch disclaimer applies. ‘Each item is assembled by hand. The mark of the maker can be found on the surface of the items, showing the efforts to manipulate materials and minimise waste. For us, an imperfect artefact for sale is preferable to a usable flaw in the dump.’
Part 1 is ‘Winter Pines‘ by Chromadots and tells a story of Hearts. ‘Storytelling Sonics. A time documented. Dictated by situation & location. Led by emotion. A long story. Not the record that was planned but a lesson in allowing music to “grow and thrive”, organically. Learning and accepting that this was the only record possible. Unpopular Love Songs.’
Winter Pines will be available tomorrow at 3pm GMT. Thanks You

A meeting of folk and electronics, the concrete and the temporary, the old and the new. Celebrating the worlds alongside our own, and the tales lost unless spoken. Ruins and nature hold the lore of the land, and these can be formed in sound, past and present. Circular.
Words by Eddie Lenihan, Steve Oldale, James Boyce & from Fairy Folklore of County Clare.

This release consists of audio recordings made using circuits based on ICs (integrated circuits or ‘chips’) from the UM series. These DIY EMIs (electronic musical instruments) come from physical remixes, and are bent by design (thanks to Rob Hordijk). The demonstration schematics found in the official datasheets were built, bent, remixed, extended, multiplied and fabricated to facilitate play with a few parameters.
This release shows music composed on computer and expressed as hardware instead of recording. The circuit composition can be viewed as a form of score. The musical instrument voice is technological. The parameters available are limited. Complex frequency output can be made with both UM66 & UM3561 in spite of their obsolescence.
The UM3561 chip was designed to produce sound effects: The chip used in this circuit produces an emergency siren type sound. The UM3561 is used four times. They not synchronised. This DIY EMI has potentiometers to control voltage starve & volume as well as an on/off switch and two touch-pads per IC so that skin contacting the PCB changes resistance and timing/frequency.
The UM66 chip was designed to play popular monophonic melodies: The chip used in this circuit plays Für Elise. The UM66 is used two times. They not synchronised. This DIY EMI has potentiometers to control voltage starve & volume as well as a switch to change the ‘bent’ character of the sound.
These DIY EMIs require a 3v CR2032 battery for power. The output is a mono mini jack (3.5mm). Play with rhythm, melody & noise.
