London-based, Yorkshire-born composer and producer Kirk Barley has announced the release of Marionette, his new studio album. Slated for a November 24th release through Odda Recordings, the upcoming Marionette takes cues from jazz, minimalism and techno. Barley drew from field recordings, found sound, instrumental improvisations and synthetic processes to “weav[e] together familiar and uncanny moods of rural England and its Victorian architecture”, as the press release describes. Speaking about the tracks on the album, Barley describes them as “landscape or static scene paintings”.
Along with the album announcement, Barley has shared ‘Lake of Gold’, the first magical and soothing single. It comes with an accompanying video filmed by Realf Heygate and you can watch it below.
