Our first release IA 001 a 7" by Simon H Fell is released today. It features two pieces: The first is Composition No 44.1 : Electronic Study No. 1 and the other Composition No. 56 : The Improving Inglenook.
The first piece is a tribute to the early pioneers of electronic music and has more than a nod towards Stockhausenís early electronic works. The second piece (The Improving Inglenook) evolved from a piece for quintet and pre-recorded processed and sampled bell sounds that Simon was commissioned to write by Haverhill Town Council in 2000. In the piece presented here Simon has taken the bell sounds from the original composition and developed them via pitch bending, distortion and gapping.
Copies are available from various distributors and mail order outlets or directly from us. The price for UK buyers is £4.00 (cheques payable to Irrational Arts. Address on the Contact page) including postage. If you wish to purchase a copy and have it sent outside the UK then please email us for prices.
