Various Artists – Stills 01 – String and Tins Recordings

Beginning this brand new imprint is the exciting proposition of three artists getting to choose a piece of Art from the Tate Britain gallery to inspire the creation of music from. The starting point for Jim Stewart is Dead Sea by the British artist Paul Nash whose painting of the same name conjures up a rich, intensity suitably reflected in the surge of brutal energy which eventually reaches a more contemplative end. Simon Whiteside chose the architecture of Inversions by Mary Martin and his free flow of shimmering instrumentation captures its essence perfectly. Next is Arthur Hacker’s 1892 painting Annunciation and Joe Wilkinson’s work provides an ethereal blend of voice and blissful conclusion to this inspired selection of music and musicians.

Release: April 19
