Several years in the making, Andy Wilson (RBE) and Simon Crab (Bourbonese Qualk) release their first album as sunseastar, based on location recordings from around the UK and Norway. Having worked together in Bourbonese Qualk, sunseastar use processed location sounds as the basis of a refined new sound, somewhere at the borders of music concrete and acousmatic composition. The result is a riot.

The CD comes packaged as a mini LP on superb brown chip reverse board stock with a full colour 8 page booklet containing extensive liner notes about the recordings.

“These recordings are the first result of several years of work. Crab and I had worked together in his group Bourbonese Qualk before starting sunseastar as a separate project with its own agenda. The idea was inspired by listening to Xenakis and thinking about a physicists’ joke about how uncanny it is that nature can solve differential equations instantaneously. The stochastic processes Xenakis uses to construct his music are all around us anyway. From this thought came the idea of taking a short cut around the hard work Xenakis had to do, and making musique concrete based directly on the sound of chaotic processes – the sound of chains rattling, of rain falling, of a field of sheep sounding their bells together, of the sea crashing on the shore, of insects moving through grass.”

Andy Wilson 2007
