compost & height compilations

for those of you who don't already know, Patrick Farmer & Sarah Hughes have been busy running the excellent 'compost & height' blog & label - which can be found by clicking here - on the blog you will find tons of downloads covering field recording, sound art and contemporary improvisation. There is also a limited edition split cdr series (releases tend to sell out in advance of publication - so take a look at the forthcoming schedule & get an email to them asap).

Back in early February they arranged a great 1st birthday event at Cafe Oto in London - a review can be found here & the first few people through the doors recieved one of three very limted edition cdr's (all with individual hand drawn sleeves by Sarah).

The line-up on these was quite remarkable & for those who couldn't be at the event the whole 3 cd set is now available as a free download here

Those reading this who are interested only in field recordings will find plenty of pieces on there (do listen to everything though, as open ears are essential for the enjoyment of field recording as a pastime & a listening experience if you ask me !)
