We introduced differen times A.R.C. Soundtracks, the audio/visual project of K.Craig and David Armes. One year later From A Shattered Beam, they have announced a new album. DERELICTION//MIRROR will be out on September 25th via Gizeh Records. Title-track is the first excerpt available for streaming. Listen below.
DERELICTION//MIRROR was created on-residency at Salford’s Islington Mill, home to GNOD, Sacred Tapes and many other noise/experimental musicians and labels. It is an audio/visual piece that uses the semi-derelict attic spaces as both inspiration and source material. Focussing on the notion of ruins and their potential for reappropriation, DERELICTION//MIRROR combines a dense, multi-layered sound-world with ritualistic visuals to create an immersive, hypnotic work.
This new film and soundtrack takes us into a bleak auditory realm of post-industrial structures and traces the role of the body within these liminal spaces. Strained harmonics and industrial, discordance mesh with veiled rhythms and spoken-word narrative to create a heavy, static energy to both sound and visuals.
