A Music Residency program.
19 August 2015, 6pm-9pm
Islington Mill, James St, Salford, M3 5HW
Early in 2015 John Powell Jones and Callum Higgins AKA Swaggerjack embarked upon SBR002. The residency saw the duo lock themselves away within the confines of Islington Mill's Club Space for a whole week in total solitude. The aim: to create a record that was free from influence from the outside world. They wanted to experiment with sound and what was possible and the result, possibly 'the best record they have ever made' says Higgins.
So where and when can you get your hands on this record, well there is the coup, this record was produced just once, split across 4 sides and pressed onto degradable dub plates, with all Digital copies destroyed. The only way you will hear this record is to visit the sole copy in existence which is stored at the British Library Sound Archives in London. Details of when this will be available are TBC.
So on August 19th the duo launch a limited edition book that they produced as part of their residency. The book will provide the audience with an insight into the process of the record. It includes notes between the duo, images, doodles and all sorts. Produced using screen prints and risograph the book will be in a run of 50 and accompanied by an exhibition of some of the images and notes PLUS the artwork for the sole record! (This will be your only chance to see this). The exhibition will take place in the Islington Mill gallery just a few metres away from where the residency took place.
The book will be £10 and available at the exhibition, any remaining copies will be available via the Samarbeta website.
