I'm busy at the moment working on something for the excellent (and relatively new)

They've released ten varied recordings so far, of which my favourites are Corks by Clive Pearman and Richard Sanderson, and the intriguingly titled A Wee Dug Stole A Haddy Bone - Pibroch Viola Improvisations by Ivor Kallin.

South Gare is at the southern side of the entrance to the River Tees and is a man made area of reclaimed land constructed largely out of blast furnace slag and concrete.

The skyline is dominated by industry, notably the huge Redcar Steelworks, yet the Gare is popular with birdwatchers and walkers. It is an interface where two worlds meet and overlap. There are many layers of resonance.

A fascinating place from which to glean sonic raw material.
