released July 31, 2015

A collection of pieces reflecting Nelson Mandela's fortitude while incarcerated on Robben Island, where partial solitude and afternoons spent breaking rocks would fail to dim his inspirational even-handedness.

Having joined forces briefly on Placement's Pieces From A Life Album, Giles Jacobs and Wolfgang Merx wanted to explore the possibility of working 'together in separate studios' - but without lots of multi-track files. Meaning that once a recording was handed from one to the other, it could only be altered as a whole (for example by adding more sounds or manipulating everything at once), but not re-worked in bits. So in other words, these recordings are a true overlay, rather than ‘all mixed up’!

"We like the immediacy of this approach and by extension, we’ve not tinkered with the results by removing any recording faults or clicks, or otherwise interfering with Antonio de Braga’s delicious drumming! Similarly our inspiration for the music was direct and uncomplicated, with the sad passing of Mr Nelson Mandela coinciding with the project’s outset, we found our reflections settled very readily on his compassion and fortitude." - Giles Jacobs

All tracks by Giles Jacobs and Wolfgang Merx except:

(1) Features the drums of Antonio de Braga, plus the Freesound.org sample ’some young girls and women washing dishes..' by felix.blume and the voice of Nelson Mandela which was recorded from an unidentified radio news program.*
(2) Contains the Freesound.org samples, ‘windy day.mp3’ by Soundmary, ‘doing them cobblestones.wav’ by Inchadney and ‘stones sound.wav’ by uzbazur 345. It also includes crowd singing recorded from an unidentified radio news program.*
(6) Features the Freesound.org sample ‘some young girls and women washing dishes..' by felix.blume, plus separate recordings of township violence and the voice of Nelson Mandela both recorded from an unidentified radio news program.*
*These recordings were made whilst listening to a cafe radio on the day of Mr Mandela’s passing. It is hoped none will object to their inclusion.
