"Phonautogram is a word of consummate craftsmanship, as detailed and delicate as an old fashioned timepiece" The Wire
The third album from Winter North Atlantic is a unique, textural sonic offering. Layers of smoothness and discordance are reminiscent of Tim Hecker productions , combined with early Tunng melodies and the David Axelrod’s arrangements. Previous releases have been described as melodies that “seduce you with their meandering grace drenched in nostalgic overtones” [The Wire], drawing comparisons as varied as Can, Ry Cooder and Bonobo.WNA, Ed Carter’s recent projects have included ‘~Flow’ (a floating musical watermill on the Tyne commissioned for the 2012 Olympics, with Owl Project), a site-specific graphic-score ‘Barographic’ (composing with atmospheric pressure and architectural form of the Sage Gateshead), and a Channel 4 commission of a stunning new piece titled ‘The False Lights of Durham’, recorded and filmed in Durham Cathedral. more by the artist >
