  • Carnivorous Plants & Bowditch Double Bundle

    OUTSTANDING DOWNLOADS CODES SENT VIA EMAIL

    Pro-dubbed cassettes with full-colour printed artwork together at a bundle price. 20 bundles available, subject to increase depending on demand.

    As a way of making up for lost time as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic, there will be two albums released most months on RTR throughout 2020 and into 2021. The second double bundle features Carnivorous Plants' 'Storm Ruler' (RTR027) and Bowditch's 'Songs for Wyatting' (RTR028). Both albums explore sonic textures and improvisation: 'Storm Ruler' pushes the recording medium of tape to the point of saturation and lo-fi; 'Songs for Wyatting' utilises imperfect 'silence' found on broadcasting materials as a sound source.

    Bandcamp only allows for one download code per physical item - an additional download code for the outstanding bundle release will be sent directly to the email address provided when purchased. The additional code will also be included in the envelope when the order is shipped.

about

The three tracks here are all made from different kinds of silence and utilise MIDI data extracted from Robert Wyatt’s ‘Dondestan’ LP using Ableton’s Convert Melody to MIDI function.

‘Rock Bottom’ takes the click of a stylus on the run out groove of the B-side of Robert Wyatt's LP which was gifted to Stuart by activist and artist Nicola Field. ‘RNID cassette’ is made from tape hiss, found at the end of the intended contents of a Royal National Institute for the Deaf cassette containing different kinds of tinnitus, which Stuart digitised for artist Damien Robinson. ‘Apollo 12’ uses radio silence from communications on the moon landing mission which were made available via the NASA website.

'Songs for Wyatting' takes its inspiration from wyatting, described on urban dictionary as '...the practice of deliberately selecting annoying or extreme music on an mp3 jukebox to cause irritation to others…'
