Kate Carr’s Glasgow Daydream

A track from the founder of Flaming Pines label

Found voices bleed into birdsong, everyday noises meld with the echoed hush of an instrument’s slow fade. The journey marked by footsteps and railway announcements parallels the progression of the track built from these very sounds. This is “I Remembered It All Somewhere Near Glasgow”by the highly active sound figure Kate Carr, who runs the fine Flaming Pines label. The track is an extended, nearly nine-minute travelog, one that is both compressed and languorous. It is both a dense collation of accumulated sounds, and a slowly paced sequence that asks for the listener’s patience and attention and returns the favor. If there is one thing that marks exemplary sound art and experimental music, it is it’s ability to reward the imagination.
