The back cover states the following note: "This work is part one in a series which explores the sites and sounds of Glasgow, Scotland. The original recording was made on the 10th of January 2011, using a Zoom H2 field recorder and Soundman OKM II in ear binaural mics. Processing and augmentation took place on the 18th of April 2011."


have you ever been to glasgow? and, did you ever wonder how a train ride would sound like at this particular location? well, not sure if i’m able myself to answer any of these questions positively but for no particular reason i am aware of, other than the sound itself, do i enjoy train journeys and always wondered why all these rolling metal carriages sound different, although differently similar, at any given location on this planet, yet transporting the exact same emotions. those, though, may vary to great extend for every single individual involved. and this is where Jason Kavanagh joins us: one of his recent, and first ever under his own name, releases offers said scenario from the viewpoint of some one who suffers from myalgic encephalopathy/chronic fatigue syndrome. his field recording of a train ride within glasgow, heavily processed, creates a rather intense effigy of such trip where all regular rattling, voices of fellow passengers and announcements melt into a dense atmosphere, being nothing more than a drone seemingly perceived from behind a shell of glass, another sphere. a potent and monotone, yet fragile and complex creation full of profundity.
