Various Artists - Three Films by Goatherder

TOR071. Released March 2020.

01. The Heartwood Institute - Castlerigg
02. Amy Tweddle - RAF Silloth Abandoned
03. Goatherder - Kingmoor

Last year, I was preparing for a photography exhibition. As I collected together the pictures, I began to wonder about film, and how static film shots differ from still life photographs.

In October, I chose and shot at three different locations. They were the Castlerigg stone circle near Keswick, the abandoned RAF base in Silloth and Kingmoor nature reserve in Carlisle. All locations are in Cumbria.

I had began discussing film and soundtracks with two friends; Jonathan Sharp (The Heartwood Institute) and Amy Tweddle (wearequasaars), and they provide two of the pieces here.The third I made myself.

Three short films about the absence of people.

From the Obscure Tape Music of Japan series. 'Oen (A Woman Names En)' is from 1963 and 'Mittsu No Sekai' was composed in 1959 for orchestra and tape.

The Electric Prunes ‎- Mass In F Minor

Reprise Records 1968

01 Kyrie Eleison
02 Gloria
03 Credo
04 Sanctus
05 Benedictus
06 Agnus Dei

In 1968, The Electric Prunes found themselves with even more contractual bad luck. This time, they had to record arrangements for producer David Axelrod's vision of Gregorian chant cum psychedelia opus.

The band split during the recording and the finished result has Canadian band The Collectors filling in with session musicians.

This should result in a bitter disappointment, but it's a psych classic.
