'Motion’ is a new collaborative album from established sound artists, Toby Marks and Andrew Heath. Four immersive soundscapes were created and compiled featuring field recordings from recent trips to the North, South, East and West of Britain. Each trip took as it’s theme a particular form of transport which, in addition to other environmental sounds from those areas, were processed and transformed, blending piano, guitars and electronics to produce a deeply meditative, endlessly unfolding collection. Sometimes evoking images of machinery, sometimes of nature, the pieces flow and twist, at all times maintaining a humanity and sense of personal experience at their core.
Performed live, the pieces are partly composed and partly improvised as both artists follow the lead of the recorded sounds to guide their playing. Sometimes intense, sometimes barely there at all, the music enthralls and entices, drawing the audience into a world both seemingly familiar and strangely unknown.
Accompanying the music are live video manipulations by Patrick Dunn, blending real-world imagery and computer generated textures.
