“Songs to the cistern”
Bobby Jewell is a musician and ambient dj/radio show host on Resonance Extra and elsewhere and “Songs to the cistern” is his artist debut on Mahorka that was assembled and finalised during the last year specially for the label and also comes out as special limited cassette edition.
“This EP is made from scraps of sounds from various harddrives, phone videos, field recordings and youtube links over the past eight years. Stitching these parts together was just as much down to chance as it was intent and any additional music made to accompany serves sunderpin the found sound or sample. Though I hesitate to say ‘scrapbook’ or ‘collage’ hopefully these tracks point more at importance of wearing your influences on your sleeve working with the media that surrounds you rather than stressing your own individuality against it”
