Advent 2017: Day 3

Advent 2017: Day 4

Medium: Paranormal Field Recordings and Compositions, 1901-2017

While this time of the year brings forth Christmas, with the 4th day of our Bleep Advent we thought we would delve into the darkest recess of December's winter with Medium: Paranormal Field Recordings and Compositions, 1901-2017. An album of frozen in time recordings of intangible vestiges of the past. Pressed to vinyl to haunt our contemporary world.

Medium: Paranormal Field Recordings and Compositions, 1901-2017 collects together some of the most exquisitely claustrophobic and spectral recordings to ever be etched into wax. The recordings contained set out to consider how intangible vestiges of the past complicate, and in fact, haunt our contemporary world.

Produced as the sonic counterpart to the Zuckerman Museum of Art’s ‘Medium' exhibition. Medium: Paranormal Field Recordings and Compositions contains a selection of nocturnal recordings that go a long way to educate on the intertwining links between sound recording and spiritualism throughout the decades. While the accompanying sleeves notes detail the history of The Spiritualist movement of the late 1900s and the use of mediums as vessels to express the musings of 'ghosts'. The audio captured on the vinyl contains fascinating abstractions from parapsychology archives in the US and Europe, including the infamous Enfield Poltergeist (1977-1979), and audio from a wax cylinder recording made in Siberia in 1901 that is considered by experts to be the very first EVP (Electronic Voice Phenomenon) recording.

True teeth chattering tracks that will find a home in the darkest corner of your record collection. Listen to within the dead of night for maximum impact.
