Location Specific – Cathedral Forest Trail

Every sound on this track is a prepared/modified sample taken from field recordings at Cathedral Forest Trail: hinges, taps, light switches, sliding doors, appliance noise and environmental sound. The first in a series of field-recording-based techno tracks.


Take a voyage of discovery across a deeply felt landscape of rumination, ruin and rebirth. All spun into existence on vinyl.

A little word about methodology this month: These transmissions are random. Each month we receive new records, or track down dusty finds in remote corners. The records might get a cursory listen, but in general they are new to us. No planning, no organizing, just working out of one box of records, until it tells a two-hour story. Each transmission unfolds somewhat unexpectedly, which is probably the way it should be. Enjoy.
