Port Sulphur : In contrast to the methodology deployed on the first album, ‘Speed Of Life’ features no collaborations or vocals, the instrumental pieces were recorded by Douglas MacIntyre, Paul Turnbull and Samuel Joseph Smith (at the later’s Green Door studios in Glasgow). The album was constructed using ‘automatic’ writing and recording techniques based on an reimagined soundtrack for Andrei Tarkovsky’s film, ‘Nostalghia’. Photographer Gavin Fraser and film director Grant McPhee were very much part of the ‘Speed Of Life’ team.
Speed Of Life features 10 tracks, all of which were cut live before being reconstructed by editing, in much the same way that Can and Harmonia shaped their music.
