This CD was released in May 2024 by experimental musicians Teignmouth Electron from Brighton, UK, in a limited edition of 5 copies by the UK experimental label Adhuman.

Contains 3 Lo-Fi Concrete tracks. Comes in a 4-sided Digipak.

Below is a commentary by the label.

Teignmouth Electron is the solo project of Maureen Hallomas, who is also known for her work on projects such as Polly Shang Kuan Band, Rubber Demon, Leopard Leg and Men Oh Pause. Although Teignmouth Electron focuses primarily on live performances, she has released small but significant recordings in 2007 on labels such as Hex Out Tapes, Chocolate Monk and Research laboratories.

Even within the tiny community of oddballs in Brighton's experimental art and music underground, Teignmouth Electron have always stood out through their deceptively crafted, concept-driven works, steeped in fun, strange and often deeply sentimental atmospheres. On You Are Not Alone, Hallomas takes us back in time through two archival works derived from tapes recorded before the project's official existence. From Beyond the Attic is a cassette recording from 2. Amid the murkiness are snippets of barely discernible radio broadcasts and, shockingly, a nearby phone conversation, somehow picked up and eavesdropped on without the caller's knowledge. Whereas those tracks are largely unedited and unadorned, Science TAC takes a more compositional approach, with Hallomas dismantling and rearranging recordings from 2001 of her and her friends improvising surreal skits and zero-competence musical performances.

Hallomas' handling of the sound sources positions You Are Not Alone in a cross-section of uncanny listening. Science TAC's light-hearted interventions recall esoteric Hörspiel productions, while From Beyond the Attic inhabits a space of audio vérité and found sound art objects. The personal significance of the recordings is repurposed in the album's form, weaving tangible imagery and meaning into them, documenting the funny, strange, and emotionally transformative power of sound and image to tell life's stories and mark significant events."

Adhuman:

"Teignmouth Electron is the solo project of Maureen Hallomas, otherwise known for involvement in projects like Polly Shang Kuan Band, Rubber Demon, Leopard Leg, Men Oh Pause and more. Seen and heard most often in a live performance guise, Teignmouth Electron has nonetheless produced a small yet significant back catalogue of recorded work going as far back as 2007 on labels such as Hex Out Tapes, Chocolate Monk and Research laboratories.

Even within an already microscopic community of oddballs resident among Brighton's experimental art and music underground, Teignmouth Electron has continually stood out on its own through deceptively crafted, conceptually guided works drenched in fun, bizarre and often profound sentimental atmosphere. With 'You Are Not Alone' Hallomas takes us back in time via two archival pieces derived from tape recordings predating the official existence of the project. Material from a cassette made in 2001 is presented here as 'From Beyond the Attic', a pair of tracks in which a single possessed tape walkman acts as a conduit for a symphony of broken electromagnetic noise and interference. Punctuating the murk are snatches of barely discernible radio broadcasts and, shockingly, nearby phone conversations somehow picked up and Voyeuristically captured on tape unknown to the callers. Where these tracks are presented largely unedited and unadorned, 'Science TAC' sees a more compositional strategy put to work, with Hallomas pulling apart, processing and rearranging a 1999 recording of her and her friend improvising surreal skits and zero competence musical performance.

Hallomas' treatment of her sources situates "You Are Not Alone" in a curious cross-section of listening outcomes. The light touch interventions of "Science TAC" bring to mind an esoteric Hörspiel production, whilst "From Beyond the Attic" inhabits spaces of audio verité and finds sound art objects via whacked out mail art noise experimentation. The personal significance of the recordings weaves palpable imagery and meaning into their re-use in album form, chronicling the funny, strange and emotionally transformative power of sound and image in the telling of life's tales and demarcation of its key events.
