Chris Herbert on Resonance FM
An exclusive 57 collage piece by new signing, Chris Herbert was broadcast on Resonance FM recently. The brief was to construct something from field recordings and what came about was a patchwork made from a series of 'sound walks' around the canals close to where Chris works. "This proved to be an almost overwhelming resource - as a city that flourished during the industrial revolution, Birmingham is criss-crossed by waterways and by becoming a lunchtime flaneur I attempted to capture a snapshot of the tragic beauty of these rusting arteries. Just yards from my office I found weird, alien lacunas of nature set against light industrial units, the robust good humour of panel beaters against a backdrop of local radio, the gentle throb of narrow boats, leaking locks and septic lakes."

A fine resource
A good sampling of music from this important label. Sometimes challenging, frequently experimental, always enjoyable.
