Edition of 50.

"London based sound artist and performer Lou Barnell presents two new extended works, "Takis" and "What Came Before This" for the latest release in the Linear Obsessional Cassette Imprint.
SIDE 1
TAKIS

"We have chased the sacred symbols from the desert and replaced them with electronic eyes"
(TAKIS Telelumiere No. 4 1963–4)

A brutal, dream-like hypnotic soup of sensory tests, voice, wearable sound-material sculptures and augmented electronics. Written in homage to the late artist TAKIS to explore social structures and their relationship with sound, environmental and biological energies and material. web of control and power that is played out upon the human body.


SIDE 2
WHAT CAME BEFORE THIS
Is a composition for clock recordings, mixed electronics, vocals, melting ice and harp.
In January 2020 I had the privilege of being invited to record the collection of clocks owned by the Worshipful Company of Clockmakers at The Science Museum with Ian Thompson.
The museum began to open at the stroke of ten just as all the clocks had begun to chime.

The sounds of daily life bled into the strict sonic architecture of the clocks as they sounded. School children, cleaners and café staff made the Museum into a breathing entity.
Listening back to the raw sound files during lockdown you can hear society drift in through the door. I felt an intense grief for losing time and space as we once knew it. Precarious futures await us. It feels as though we have been submerged in curious new structures of labouring, creating and waiting that constantly shapeshift. These unstable formations seem as though they are restless- trying to settle comfortably back into time and space as it once was. "
