Blackford Hill is a studio based arts collective that seems intent on conjuring new creations from thin air.
Using collaboration as a tool in its own right, it's become a hub for a print journal, in-depth vinyl releases, and much more.
New compilation 'Transmissions / Volume One' is out on April 16th, and it features a raft of unreleased and specially commissioned projects.
Clash favourite Andrew Wasylyk offers up something special, with his adorably pretty 'Adrift Below A Constellation' getting the Tommy Perman remix treatment.
A gorgeous listen, Tommy Perman re-arranges Andrew's work, while remaining true to the highly intoxicating sense of atmosphere that pervades it.
The new remix is a natural extension of their creative relationship, with Tommy explaining:
Andrew and I began working together in 2018 when we produced a video for 'Mariner's Hymn' from his 'The Paralian' LP. Since then, I've been developing visuals for live shows with his nine-piece ensemble as well as directing a collection a wee films to accompany his 'Fugitive Light And Themes Of Consolation' album.
I was drawn to the idea of remixing this track by its mournful, languid beauty. Ideal for an ambient-electronic re-wiring!
Andrew Wasylyk adds:
I've been lucky to work with Tommy and his approach to creativity these past few years.
Here, he seems to have distilled yet dilated the original sentiment into a whole new cosmos. This remix of his is the closest we've come to collaborating sonically, and I think we both secretly hope to use it as a door towards a new project together.
We're able to share the remix in full, alongside some specially commissioned visuals, and it's a real treat - a sign that we can achieve more together than we can apart.
Tune in now.
