PMTV: POSTMUSIC Session

Well this is an absolutely surprising delight to wake up to this!!

We we’e introduced to the lovely Stephen Cole when we we’re on tour in 2019. He runs a music project called POSTmusic out of What Studio and it was arranged for us to take part when we got to Liverpool. The studio is based upstairs in a large old church, but felt like a sweet subversive space for weirdos music makers.

We met early afternoon, set up, got the costumes on on the front steps, between the legs of the edifice, and bang bang, spat the two tunes out in quick succession. One take, all at once, and this is the first take.

We have recently been remixing the audio with Stephen, via the wonders of the WWW. Which is exciting practice. In a couple of weeks we will start laying down the first tracks for the new album at the infamous local Scumbag College. Then, when all tracks are complete, we shall send to What Studio to pick up the mixing and mastering of the final collection.

Othering Heights – Video

The audio was recorded while in Liverpool, UK. mr sterile Assembly were invited to participate in a POSTMusic recording session, based at What Studio, inside an old church in Toxteth. The studio run by Stephen Cole of a.P.A.t.T. fame.
The visuals added to this one-take recording are assembly in a cut-up styled video clip, using footage from across the nine countries, film by the band members or people in the audience.
As editing took place it seemed like a visually sympathetic narrative was forming in concert with the text. Contrasting land and cityscapes, from rural to metropolis, and identifying similarities across the globe of the experiences of so many people who exist in the perimeters and boundaries of ‘first-world’ environments. Context and experience is fluid, mobile and dynamic. Luck is not constant.
Enjoy anyway
