exploring the more experimental aspects of their previous work, 'the beam' is a carefully crafted electronic collage mixing buchla, moog & ems synthesisers, with tape manipulated percussion & acoustic sources.
like a souvenir record from a mid-century world’s fair, ‘the beam’ follows in the footsteps of early electronic composers such as raymond scott, tristram cary & tom dissevelt. the b-side, 'in the shadow of the skylon' is an oscillating ode to a long lost london landmark & futuristic structure created for the festival of britain in 1951.
