I’ll let them explain…
“Album Number Four update!
Most of you will be aware by now that we are currently in the studio. We’d like to invite you guys to help add a dimension to the new material.
As part of developing the theme of this album, we want to gather a collection of field recordings
( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Field_recording ) – a series of sounds to give an insight into the complex and varied lives of our friends from around the world. We’d love for you to share with us any recordings you have – soundscapes, melodic sounds, percussive sounds – the only requirement is that it’s a recording of a sound you’ve encountered which you find interesting (and own the rights to). Whether it’s the static from your old radio, the sound of the train you take to work every morning, or your grandfather telling a story in another language – if it’s a sound you like, we want to hear it.
The idea is to use the recordings in different ways throughout the album, to weave them in and out of songs and make the people who attend our shows and buy our albums a part of the process – to make the album a more unified experience for us and for you. If your sound is used, you’ll be informed in advance and will of course be credited in the liner notes of the album. We look forward to hearing a varied selection of sonic snippets from across the globe!
Thank you for taking the time to read this. We hope to hear from you soon.”
So there you go, I dread to think what you reprobates will send them but good luck!
