Below is a description of the label.

Full Spectrum and The Dark Outside are pleased to announce Kimbre's first collaborative album, "Birl of Unmap," a project by Mike and Andy's twin brothers Truscott and writer / artist Claire Archibald. ..Originally from the Kingdom of Fife, Scotland, this trio offers new practices in creative dialogue and sound experiments, exploring the abstract concept of "place" and breaking down its innate rhythm and sound totems.

birl is a Scottish word meaning "turn" or "swirl".

In short, the "Birl of Unmap" is an attempt to unravel the dynamic layers that make Fife an artistic and physically interesting area, and it also interprets the perceptual language of this place.Located across the sea from both the cities of Edinburgh and Dundee, but adjacent to the open North Sea, the Kingdom of Fif is connected to the larger world and at the same time resolutely owns.Accessed from all directions by the iconic bridge, and not an island, such a landscape allows for the existence of a semi-unknown truth and space. The Birl of Unmap is one response in such a place.This place in West Five has several past and many names, as an open pit mine, as a long-standing mine village called Lassody, and more recently as a land art vision of postmodern architect Charles Jencks. Exists as.

The area, now known as St. Ninians, was sold for redevelopment as an eco-wellness center in 2021, but has existed for many years in a strange dangling state between purpose and open to the public. The Birl of Unmap talks about a place from a different era and perspective, the land, the art installed there using mining machinery that Jenks has abandoned, and the "Final Void" from both a mining and space perspective. It's about the idea, and what it means to know, share, and pass on the piece of space to know, share, and tell the story.This album incorporates field recordings from the earth, water, air and industrial equipment in the field and aims to give space to the heritage of the landscape through the energy of the place and the interaction of humans and more than humans. is.

Based on academic research, oral history, and the experience of other Fifth-based artists, former miners, and locals, the Birl of Unmap is more than just a holistic representation of aesthetics, it's your own experience and understanding. It embodies an ambitious call to think about how to balance the experiences of others.This invites you to wander through the layers, perhaps find something of your own in them.

"Full Spectrum and The Dark Outside are pleased to present'Birl of Unmap,' the first collaborative album from Kinbrae – the project of twin brothers Mike and Andy Truscott – and writer / artist Clare Archibald. Hailing from the Kingdom of Fife in Scotland, the trio has forged a new practice in creative dialogue and sonic experimentation, exploring abstract notions of'place' and deconstructing its innate rhythms and sonic totems.

For the unfamiliar, a bit of vocabulary context may be required – “birl” is a Scots word that means to spin or whirl.

To wit,'Birl of Unmap' is an attempt to unravel the dynamic layers that make Fife an area of ​​both artistic and physical interest, as well as interpreting something of the perceived language of the place. Sitting across the water from the cities of both Edinburgh and Dundee, yet also adjacent to the open North Sea, the Kingdom of Fife is both connected to the greater world and resolutely of itself. It can be reached from all directions by iconic bridges and yet is not an island, but such a landscape 'Birl of Unmap' is a response to one such place – a place of several pasts and many names in West Fife that has existed as an open cast mine, the long gone pit village of Lassodie, and most recently as a not-quite-fully realized land art vision of the post-modern architect Charles Jencks.

Currently known as St. Ninians, the area in question has existed in a strange limbo between purpose and public access for many years, though it was sold in 2021 for redevelopment as an eco-wellness center. a place from different times and perspectives, of the land, of the art that Jencks installed there using decommissioned mining machinery, of the idea of ​​the Final Void in both mining and cosmic terms and of what it means to know, to share a place and Infused with field recordings from the earth, water, air, and industrial installations on-site, the album seeks to give space to the energies of a place and the landscape legacies of human and more than human interactions with it.

Drawing on academic research, oral histories, and the experiences of other Fife-based artists, as well as former miners and residents of the site,'Birl of Unmap' stands as more than the sum total of aesthetic tropes, embodying an ambitious call to Consider how we balance our own experiences and understandings with those of others. This is an invitation to wander through the layers and perhaps find something more of ourselves within them.
