Fading Room: Memories & Remixes
- Artist: Future Loop Foundation
- Format: CD
- Release Date:8/27/2008
Future Loop Foundation came to life with it's debut album release in 1996, and four other albums have followed since, as well as an impressive run of remixes, soundtracks and live appearances. After a stunning set from Future Loop Foundation at last year's Big Chill festival, Just Music and Mark Barrott started discussing the obvious synergy between the philosophy of the label and the sound and style of Future Loop Foundation. We are now thrilled to announce the release of The Fading Room: Memories and Remixes, a beautiful album constructed from recordings of family interviews that have laid dormant in an attic somewhere in the north of England for almost a quarter of a century. Mark Barrott has assembled a highly personal and organic album around these speech samples, using electronic and acoustic instruments as one to present an album that sparkles with originality and wit. It achieves an intriguing balance between conjuring up snapshots of a nostalgic past, whilst being wholly contemporary in musical vision. This musical vision of The Fading Room when performed live by Future Loop Foundation is combined with live visuals performed and mixed by Myogenic which develops this \'then\' and \'now\' vision further with a bitter sweet look at the past and the present and the social and political implications for us all.\' This beautifully packaged release comes together with an accompanying album of remixes of key tracks by Rob Da Bank & Chris Coco, Tunng, Beauty Room, The Go! Team, Jon Kennedy and Padded Cell amongst others.
