Music for Severn Sirens

An extremely atmospheric ambient album featuring 8 distinct tracks.

The title track is based on recordings of the "Severnside Sirens". These are warning sirens based along the coast from Avonmouth towards Clevedon in North Somerset. There are 12 siren stacks which would be used in the event of a chemical leak or fire on Avonmouth docks. The sirens are tested once a month and create a live "Steve Reich" style phase track. You hear the different sound sources coming in and out of phase as the sound travels from the various sirens.

This album is dedicated to the memory of Anna-Jane Vine. Track 7 is made from one short sample of her voice.

Available to purchase on CD (in a lovely matt laminated Digipack) or downloadable in WAV/Flac/MP3 and other formats. Also available on all the usual download and streaming sites.
