Toneburst announcement – Follow Suit

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

Phil & Barry

<kat no.11>

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.

Matilde Meireles – Useful Constraints

The latest TONEBURST release is now available.

https://toneburst.bandcamp.com/

<kat no.13>

A very familiar journey. Two locations, Lisbon and Seixal. A river in between. A ferry crossing. A journey between north and south of the greater city of Lisbon in Portugal. These are the premises that envelope the project.

The project results from a detailed exploration of timbres and rhythms using various field recording techniques. The result takes the listener on a journey between metal, water, and time.

This edition also includes two collaborations between Matilde and Tone Burst. A silk print printed by Galdéria in Caldas da Rainha (Portugal), and a short audio/visual element—Follow the water. The silk print is a graphic exploration of the project’s useful constraints, while the audio/visual element is a conversation between Matilde, Phil and Barry using recordings of water from the various locations where each one of us was based: Lisbon, Munich and Belfast.
