Inchmickery, 9.12.07 In December 2007 we performed on Inchmickery island off the coast of Edinburgh. We traveled to the island from Granton harbour on a boat which we chartered. 10 people made the crossing to see us play. Prior to the performance, we had made a 25-minute piece of music from recordings of the boat’s engine. The performance involved the audience listening to this music played through speakers on the boat while traveling to and from the island, and on portable mp3 players whilst on the island.
Immediately after the performance, we released a CD in a limited edition hand made sleeve, designed in collaboration
with artist Sam Collier. The CD contains 24 minutes of repetitive electronic music which evolves very gradually,
accruing detail as it does so. The CD inlays were made using nearly identical photographs of a block of flats in
Edinburgh called Inchmickery Court. The photographs were taken by Sam. He walked around the flats after taking each photo,
returning to the same position a few minutes later to take the next one. Copies of this CD, minus the hand made sleeve and
inlay, are still available for £3 plus £1 p&p. Please email us for details.
