Beautiful sounds from overlooked British composer Basil Kirchin – a talent who's finally been brought to light by the Trunk
Records label, who've done a great job of digging up some of his more obscure work, and finally getting it the attention it deserves! This package is a sidebar to those releases – as it's a special collection, done as part of a Basil Kirchin Festival, and features a fair bit of unreleased material, alongside some tracks from other Trunk
releases, as well as a few snippets of conversation with Kirchin too! As with the man's full oeuvre, the sounds here run from dreamy and melodic, to spacey and electronic, to moody and improvised – but all with an understated charm that makes a journey into the mind of Kirchin well worth taking. Titles include "Charcoal Skets 2", "Kitchen Kirchin Excerpt 1", "Bells", "Assignment K3", "Primitive London 2", "Shuttered Room Effects Tape", "Silicon Chip", "Birds & Bangs", "The Dice Is Cast", and "The Mutations 5".
