Grace - 1 track EP - 18:39

Grace begins with a 12 string acoustic guitar fed into a modular synthesiser that spits out beautiful grains of sound that rise and fall like the sun. Textures build up and then slip away leaving a pipe organ playing and the church room recordings sonically revealing passing cyclists, rainfall and Cambridge bus station. It shimmers like an oscillating river until the strings fade and the final third section slips
in and a deep organ tone leads the tapestry of sound into field recordings, strings and processed instruments. The contact mics
on the organ pipes are heard, floorboards and unidentified human sounds appear and the alarm call of a blackbird seeps into the piece.

Simon Scott's forthcoming new album, "Soundings" will be out later this year on Touch.
