about

The latest addition to the Sacred Tapes growing catalogue of cassette releases comes from Laurie Tompkins and is perhaps the labels most abstract release to date. Incorporating Flowerpots, voices and keys, 45th Generation and European Bob is as much percussive exploration as it is expressive performance and it’s clear the level of thought and immersion Tompkins enacts when composing these pieces. What Tompkins has created using such minimal instrumentation surpasses what you would think, and by best utilising the four performers he manages to create tracks that are rich and filled with layers of detail. Each listen rewards you with something new you hadn’t previously spotted.

Flowerpots, voices, keys by Sam Andreae, Suze Whaites, Owen Roberts, Laurie Tompkins

Mixed by Owen Roberts

Thanks to Joe Snape, and also to Ryan, who hosted the premiere at the magnificent Del Rex, Berlin, where the piece was first performed in June 2015 as part of Joe and ACM's "Fleck" tour, and to Callum for his patience.
