°s is inspired by patterns in urban nature: language; behaviour; seasons, and alongside poetry, explores the cyclical psychological peaks and troughs experienced during the pandemic. Live multi-instrumental improvisations apply the fibonacci sequence to create melodies and rhythms that mimic fractal patterns in nature, and are situated within binaural field recordings captured during essential travel in the first lockdown.
The album features the poem: The Rub written by Syd Hawes. Narrated by darker. Violin by Taro. Voice canon by darker. Synths, field recordings, acoustic guitar, electric guitar, flute and composition by Aboutface.
Sculpture by Aboutface. Design by Noah Baker. Mastered by Rupert Clervaux.
