Have been spending a lot of time listening to the Ex lately. This track in particular has been on heavy rotation.
(another) work plug …
I wrote an article featuring the use of shipping containers in architecture. Posting this because it took an inordinate amount of time to get the required permission, and so it feels somehow important that I should share.
Also, I admit, I like shipping containers.
The excellent Vital Weekly wrote some words regarding On Recovery. Thanks, as usual, to Gacougnol for letting me know!
The title track from On Recovery was recently played on Paul Gough’s “Quiet Space” show, on Australia’s ABC Radio National. It’s actually the second time Paul’s played one of my tracks (last time was for my Hibernate release), and I’m on second, amongst some very talented artists.
First review of On Recovery is now up, and it’s very detailed too. Thanks to Ambient Exotica!
I have finally released some new music, thanks to Gavin at Twice Removed Recs. It’s a two track EP called On Recovery and it’s based around guitar and field recordings taken around Prestatyn, Llanasa, Gwespyr and the local area.
"Adam A Williams is a musician based in North Wales, UK, who has previously appeared on Hibernate Recs, Audio Gourmet, Cathedral Transmissions, Feedback Loop, and Flaming Pines. Working with guitar, field recordings, toy piano, and various other bits and pieces, Adam creates melodic soundscapes firmly rooted in the local area. “On Recovery” represents a return to music from Adam after time spent moving house and beginning a new job. The EP charts the illness, and subsequent recovery of, Adam’s dog Finley, who fell seriously ill and required constant care. Field recordings taken on the initial days of Finley’s convalescence, his first walks, and first visit to the beach feature in the release, and it is intended as an aural document of that time. This release is a 3” cd-r EP which is attached to a postcard and is a numbered edition of 50 copies."
The Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) has announced the winners for this year’s National Awards and EU Awards. I wrote a short article here with huge image gallery containing photos of all of ‘em.
An interesting interview with Chomsky here, concerning his thoughts on anarchism. He references Bakunin, who I’ve been reading increasingly as of late.
