  • limited edition (100 copies numbered) A5 photobook + ty cd + download code

    (. 1) recorded during a residency at Moks, Estonia
    (. 2) recorded during a residency at The Wired Lab, Australia
    (. 3) recorded close to where I live, east yorkshire
    (. 4) recorded during a residency at Moks, Estonia


    these four recordings are of trees and hedge branches - standing, fallen, cut and turning to charcoal.

    released for a month as a digital download only this 2014 release soon attracted a fair bit of attention. Now re-released as a limited ty cd accompanied by a book of JrF’s brooding photographs of woods and forests at night.

    ‘a release of the natural sounds of trees in various states that allows you to re-tune your ears. Worth a purchase for the long bonfire track on its own. Remarkable. The images show another fascinating side to French’s visual work’

    Includes unlimited streaming of beam | charcoal via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.

for me there are indeed connections between field recording and photography - some are obvious of course, but mostly they are personal. Choosing images for the artwork of a release is, as far as i’m concerned, part of the compositional process. In this instance the image, taken by my daughter, Pheobe riley Law, inspired me to collect together these recordings of trees and branches recorded over the past few years.
