Stephen Cornford & Patrick Farmer – a measure of ground


I’m very happy to say that, after a wonderful tour with Stephen Cornford, our new release is available from his Consumer Waste imprint.

This release consists of two cassette tapes full of unstable encounters between the two of us and objects we found during a residency at a brownfield site in Manchester. Stephen is a wonderful person to work with, and I hope to have the opportunity to do so again in the future.

From the Consumer Waste website: 

Although they have worked together for almost four years Stephen Cornford and Patrick Farmer had never worked as a duo until recording this collection of brutalist field recordings at the IN/from the out symposium in Manchester last year. Using a single piezo contact microphone and cassette dictaphone, they scoured the site for materials to produce these recordings in a two day period. The necessary translation of these recordings from cassette to computer and back to cassette has endeavoured to retain the quality of the original recordings, reflecting their interest in the abstraction of source materials through the recording process.
