TIN STAR (LIVERPOOL)
Working with a 12-piece string section as well as brass and percussion, Corker draws out a rich palette of volatile sonics. Analogue tape processing helps re-shape things further, slowing and stretching the sound giving rise to unusual shapes and colours. And woven amongst all this are field recordings by Corker and Chris Watson, recorded around Liverpool in 2019.
In addition to the field recordings, the ensembles were recorded in London and then replayed and re-recorded or ‘worldised’ (Walter Murch) in different buildings and outdoor locations in Liverpool adding new sound spaces onto the music.
This is the third and final chapter in the Tin Star story, and the third time Corker has worked with many of the same players.
