Jon Brooks – Autres Directions – Clay Pipe Music
“Whenever I’m travelling, I take with me a means of recording ambience and constantly listen out
for interesting situations where sound can be captured and transformed. Field recordings play a
significant part in the tapestry of the album. The textures underpin, envelop and frame the work,
adding a sense of context and grain.
I spent a lot of time thinking about how I wanted the textures and atmospheres to be on an equal
footing to the melodies. The ‘wake up’ music which begins the album, I composed as a piece that
could, theoretically, be played by a ferry company to wake passengers upon their early morning
arrival into dock, over the small speakers installed in ferry cabins. To create the atmosphere, I took
the recorded piece onto a ferry, bound for France, and played it back in the cabin over a speaker,
capturing the playback with a microphone, allowing the sound and reverberant space of the ferry
cabin to influence the ambience of the piece.
Other ways of bringing the ambience of situations into the recorded pieces involved playing back
textures (that I’d created electronically in the studio) in various places (disused barns, country
lanes etc) and capturing them again on a microphone and building pieces around those
atmospheres. I also noticed that, preparing to leave the ferry, there were various metallic pitched
drones that just seemed to hang in the air, combining naturally with idling car engines – these
became music and it was from these distinct pitches that I added complimentary electronic textures
around them.”

Clay Pipe Music is a London based label run by illustrator Frances Castle.  Inspired by small press pioneers like Rena Gardiner, each release comes in carefully conceived limited edition packaging designed by Frances. If there is demand, further editions are produced. Initially Clay Pipe produced hand made CDs, but more recent releases have been on  numbered vinyl. Clay Pipe specialises in releasing atmospheric music, with a strong theme or sense of place. Frances Castle is not only a wonderful illustrator and curator of her label but is also an artist producing her own music with two albums as The Hardy Tree:  the 2010 label debut ‘The Fields Lie Sleeping Underneath’ , and most recently  2017’s Through Passages of Time. The Clay Pipe Music website should be visited and the catalogue explored if only to see the beauty of the packaging.

Kit Records Mixes are amongst our favourite mixes in the Golden Apples Mixtape Library so when we discovered a Frances Castle Clay Pipe Music Kit Mix we were very happy. Sleeve notes with lots of info here
