Modern Studies and Tommy Perman release a collaborative album, ‘Emergent Slow Arcs’.
On Fire Records – who put out the Modern Studies second long-player ‘Welcome Strangers’ – the eight-track release comes on 12″ vinyl with a unique hand-cut sleeve, limited to 500 copies.
The quartet – songwriter Emily Scott, Pete Harvey (King Creosote, The Leg), Joe Smillie (also boss of Glasgow’s The Glad Cafe) and Rob St. John – recorded the album at Harvey’s Pumpkinfield studio in rural Perthshire through 2017.
The original record was remixed largely on spec by designer, sound artist and arranger Perman – member of Found and member of BAFTA-award winning sound sculpture Cybraphon, who also operates under the Surface Pressure moniker.
Fortunately the speculative reworking met with the foursome’s approval, and is now available via Fire Records.
