‘Works from home’ is the latest release from Andrew Greaves. It features five tracks produced, unusually for Andrew, purely as recordings and without regard to live performance (what with their being not a lot of opportunity for that of late). Some of the set is based on organ improvisations created during the first lockdown of 2020. The rest of the album comprises works from the winter of 2020-21, using spontaneous of analogue synth sequencing. Each piece was conceived, collaged, recorded and mixed in one hit.

Memori Yobidashi is a collaboration between electronic producer Jake Smith and sound therapist Ruth Summers. In this eponymous release, they explore the sonority, texture and tone of assorted gongs, bowls and metal percussion through improvisation and electronics. Music to invoke memories known and unknown.
Neural Outage is Geoff Cheesemaster (Noteherder and McCloud) and Karl M V Waugh (The Zero Map, God’s Teeth & The Interstellar Tropics, A Band, Binnsclagg, among others). Using ‘electronic devices and other things’, Tiniest Glimpse was recorded during the brief period of permissible mingling in the late summer of 2020, with the two improvisors in the same acoustic space, and no online software involved.
During COVID lockdowns, Chris has been exchanging soundfiles with several members of the Spirit of Gravity Collective. This is the result of one of those collaborations, with I’m Dr Buoyant sampling field recordings by Noteherder made over the course of a day at Newhaven Fort to create the album’s essential rhythms and soundspaces.
