about

From the Earth's iron core & the magnetic fields flowing from pole-to-pole, to the mineral deposits beneath our feet, we're living in an invisible environment of magnetic flux. Ancient people across the world have described & mapped these flows over centuries: great magical & spiritual significance is given to great stones, mountains, caves & the magnetic network that may link them, sometimes described as ley lines.

Human beings, animals & even plants also are electromagnetic entities, our nervous systems are a complex matrix of organic electrical wiring.

This electromagnetic interconnectivity between the planet & the entities that inhabit it is thought by some to operate like the read & write heads of a recording device such as a tape machine. Perhaps humans sometimes 'imprint' the landscape around them - in times of great trauma or other extreme events - & maybe that same landscape 'replays' that imprint to others who are sensitive enough to receive it. What secrets lay hidden within The Ferric Landscape?

Many of the sounds in this album have been recovered from magnetic media: cassette & reel-to-reel tape, VHS etc.
The tracks have then been built-up by passing these these sounds along with recordings of analogue synthesizers & FX pedals back to tape. The resulting saturation & distortion has the effect of masking some audible frequencies whilst emphasising others, as well as creating totally new harmonics & resonances not fully present in the original sound. The aim of this process is to somewhat mimic our natural, electromagnetic landscape -largely unnoticed in the midst of the digital purity of our modern world.
