A.R.C. Soundtracks' new album DERELICTION//MIRROR was conceived as an a/v project at Islington Mill, Salford. It uses the semi-derelict attic spaces as both inspiration and source material. Focussing on the notion of ruins and their potential for reappropriation, Combining a dense, multi-layered sound-world with ritualistic visuals to create an immersive, hypnotic work.
This new film and soundtrack takes us into a bleak auditory realm of post-industrial structures and traces the role of the body within these liminal spaces. Strained harmonics and industrial, discordance mesh with veiled rhythms and spoken-word narrative to create a heavy, static energy to both sound and visuals.
