One year after Shape Memory (the collaborative album with Portland-based composer and sound artist Marcus Fischer), British sound ecologist, multi-instrumentalist and Slowdive’s drummer Simon Scott released a new solo album. Soundings is out now via Touch. He used field recordings from various cities around the globe, modular synthesizer treatments, live strings and laptop electronics to create an album of transition and shifting time zones.
The recordings were edited and composed in hotels rooms across the world as Scott was constantly on tour as the drummer for Slowdive, who successfully reformed in 2014. Full streaming is available below.
