Time Binding Ensemble: Nothing New Under the Sun
A gatefold double LP bringing cult Scottish sound artist and composer Kay Logan's alchemic neoclassical project Time Binding Ensemble to vinyl for the first time. Nothing New Under the Sun contains twenty-four movements parts of equal length, the collection cycling through each key of the musical scale before returning to its starting point, like a sundial etching sound from shadows cast throughout a day and night.
Inspired by the crumbling brutalism of St. Peter's Roman Catholic seminary in her native Scotland, Logan employs traditional instruments (french horn, bassoon, clarinet, oboe, violin, viola, and cello) fed through otherworldly machines to imbue them with a heavy-lidded, sacred geometry. An Escherian stairwell of a record.
Released in partnership with Kit Records.
