The second official release by Soloman Tump, an experimental rhythmic noise artist from Oxford, UK.
Composed during the daytime, June 2019.
Inspired by the old brick barn on Calais Lane, that has slowly been decaying the whole time I have lived around here. Wish I had taken photos of it.
TDT Write up:
I am glad to present the sophomore release from Soloman Tump, an experimental / noise artist from Oxford in the United Kingdom.
Soloman Tump debuted on The Dark Thursday with "To My Dearest Friend". An almost twenty minute piece of harsh noise, rolling pops and bright synth murmurs.
Solomon Tump now returns with "The Old Brick Barn on Calais Lane Part 2". This release is a blend of noise, synth and field recordings.
The noise is made up of static, fly like in its sound; maybe a synth that has been broken apart, one that hangs on for dear life to continue to send its signals. The other side of the noise, more ambient and reverby, with loud washes made from some impact sounds of maybe some metal or other objects (at a guess).
This is only the first section of course, the synth moves into more organised bleeps around the 6 minute mark, this begins to provide us with a rhythm of sorts, whilst loud impact sounds of maybe a bucket of rocks continue to be projected to us.
Throughout the entire piece we have bird chirps and the calls of chickens emanating throughout the piece. I am a huge fan of the sonic collaboration of nature & animal sounds and conventional harsh noise and very stabby synths, the contrast is colossal in the best way.
One could say the field recordings coming together with the noise are representative of this Brick Barn on Calais Lane, the noise taking the place of the decay of the barn and the field recordings taking the place of natures take over of the derelict structure.
