WARRINGTON-RUNCORN NEW TOWN DEVELOPMENT PLAN
DISTRICTS, ROADS, OPEN SPACE
castles in space
gordon chapman-fox expands his electronic plans for hauntological world domination with this beautiful and far-reaching cartography of synth swirls and digital whorls.
this is the third album from Warrington-Runcorn New Town Development Plan. “The music began to reflect the social isolation of New Towns life. This was mirrored by its creation through two years of pandemic lockdown. “The music is perhaps the loneliest and most spacious I have created so far - the Open Spaces in the album title taking on multiple interpretations.
The focus and feel of the album is not inspired by the architecture of new towns, but the lives lived in them. I think the precise planning new towns and creating specific zones for different activities - working, shopping and living - created an artificial way of life. One that failed to understand the sheer messiness of human existence. “Musically the canvas is more epic before. The first side comprising two epic tracks, and the second side introducing Euclidean sequencing to create disorientating, evolving melodies.” Chapman-Fox continues to find the wonder in his exploration of new towns and their impact on the lives and minds who worked and lived there. The sound palette is expanded to wonderful effect on this release.
