two live sets of intense ambient guitarscapes


1. 24
2. 23


All music/production: A. Bordicott

This release brings together two consecutive live performances:

Track 1 - Six Eight Kafé, Birmingham, UK (24-03-2017)
Track 2 - Birmingham Electronic Music Festival (23-03-2017)

Unfortunately I was only able to capture a section of the first set. Still, I think there's enough there to show how improvised performances can vary dramatically. I had planned the general direction of the first set, but left the second set wide open, without any rehearsal beforehand. This opened the door to happy accidents & I was happy with the results of both nights.

The Interstitial series documents the live/improvised side of my work, which can often be in stark contrast to my 'studio' releases.

a delicate silent ambience


1. No vestige of a beginning
2. A spectral presence in the everyday
3. Ghosts that haunt the very deep future
4. Displacement of the divine
5. The intimate and the eternal
6. Deep-time processes
7. No prospect of an end


These pieces were made from two sound sources - old clock chimes and other vintage metal objects, and extinct music from fossilised vinyl. The sounds were transformed by metamorphic and sedimentary processes to evoke the terror and wonder of deep time.

Älläï is the idea of looking yonder, up, over there, or on the bright side. It is the vast, yawning abstraction that engulfs you from any one of those places.

It's also the name of a plastic penguin that our imaginary flute player had as a child. That penguin meant everything. Please consider this whilst you listen.

Bob Murry Shelton
Guitar, myriad effects, a modular synth named "THE FURNACE", Supercollider, sneezings, and brief mutterings

Christian Michael Newman
Voice, extensive mutterings, caffeination, palmas on "Shambal...", pink fuzz on "Crack..."

James Anthony Hogard
Electric bass

Matthew Riley Walsh, Attorney at Law
Electric piano on "Portrait..."

Music composed by Bob
Lyrics to Fold by Christian
Lyrics to House of Strength and Love by Bob & Christian
Edited and arranged by Bob & Christian
Cover art by Christian

Thanks to Daniel García for inspiration.

a splendid experimental ambience from Iran


1. A Cosmic Birth

Birth of a sad beautiful star

2. A Symphony of A Murder

Imagine theater with a murder scene

3. Missing Something That Does Not Exist

We have always missed something we are not aware of what it is.
It is just a weird feeling we deal with, and it's so melancholic.

4. Gray

A song which is like a nostalgia, like an old man remembering good old times

5. Awareness

The very moment of realization of who we really are

6. A Cosmic Death

Death of a beautiful sad star

7. The Passage of Suicide

Fading into nothingness


This album is an expression of decaying feelings which we always deal with as a human being. Feelings like loneliness, emptiness, or suicidal feelings. Let us express it with music, which is a door to freedom and salvation. And remember you are not alone.

I dedicate this album to my amazing mother and my lovely beautiful girlfriend Nafisa, who has always supported me along the way and motivated me in my down times, and also my dear friend Shaheen for collaborating with me on two tracks (1+6), as well as my true friend Komeil Monfared for his amazing art on the album cover.
