MigroCISA presents:


100 Edition 12" vinyl compilation, out on Migro Records, 16 Nov. 2017

A collaboration between Canterbury Christ Church University’s CISA research unit (Composition, Improvisation, and Sound Art) and the London-based Migro Records label, CISAlocal features works by eight experimental music-makers based in Kent, UK: James Worse, Will Glanfield, Martin Tanton, Anna Braithwaite, Nicholas De Carlo, Rothera Point, Alocasia Garden, Jon Law and Oli Genn-Bash.

Ranging from improvisations on diy instruments, to instructional pieces, to a/tonal electronic meditations and crushing noise-scapes, these pieces represent more than a geographically defined creative community. In a time when a place like Kent reflects the political extremes of post-Brexit UK and a steady decrease in support for non-industry oriented art, this compilation attempts to offer a glimpse of the 'other'. Beyond notions of 'otherness' as extreme, hyper-original, exotic or marginal these pieces represent rigorous work made either in isolation or in small tightly knit networks that exist despite the lack of institutional support. With influences manifesting in manners ranging from inconspicuous to obvious by design, each work here reflects acts of listening to the 'other'. Other sounds, narratives, ideas, machines, people and other worlds, such as underwater stones in a local beach, a person making a very 'small' sound with a classical instrument or the dense, alienating noise created by the transport grid.

CISAlocal was funded by a Knowledge Exchange Award from the Faculty of Arts and Humanities. MigroCISA is an imprint of Migro Records that aims to release work by CISA members and their collaborators.
