Joe McAlinden - Edit (CD, Lossless DL & Ltd Edition Vinyl)
We are thrilled beyond words to bring you the, never before released, composition by Joe McAlinden (Superstar, Linden, Boy Hairdressers) - Edit.
Originally conceived in 2014 Edit - Tide backwards - is an almost entirely instrumental piece tackling grief and loss. Composed and performed on a water powered pipe organ. The piece was originally the musical portion of a multimedia collaboration between Joe, artists Iain Forsyth & Jane Pollard, writer Martin McCardie and arts producer Katie Nicoll. The complete work premiered at the Edinburgh International Film Festival in 2014.
Speaking about the project “Bizarrely, it was me who started it,” the former singer with the group, Superstar, says of the roots of a project that began more than a
decade ago. “I was sitting on a rock, feeling a bit exposed. Not scared, but uneasy, and I started thinking about the tide as I watched the waves coming off the rocks, and the music it made as it built into this crescendo, and I thought, I'm going to do a piece one day and I'm calling it Edit, which is tide backwards.”
Edit will be released as LNFGK07 on CD, Lossless DL and a first ever Strictly Limited Edition Komponist Transparent 45rpm 12" Vinyl. Release date 25.09.20
