British Composer sonic artist award for Kathy Hinde

We’re delighted by the news that Kathy Hinde has today won a British Composer award for her visual art. We had the great pleasure of having Kathy perform live at the Old Barn (with Eyebrow and Kolophon, 9 Oct 2017).

Her work Luminous Bird was described by the British Compooser Awards judges as

an outstanding example of what Sonic Art has to offer today.

The 2017 Yuletide log. Very limited edition offer: £72

Kelston Records’ 2017 Yuletide log comes with eight high-quality recordings made live at the Old Barn. These are stored on an 8GB wooden USB stick, compatible with PC or Mac, transferable into iTunes or any other digital music service or device.

You can purchase the 2017 Yuletide log for £72. Or you can set up a standing order of £6/month for one year which gives you the log, plus Kelston Records membership with additional downloads throughout 2018 and as long as the standing order lasts.

The artists with full-length albums featured on the 2017 Yuletide log are:

The Defective Comet
Eyebrow
The Jellilalas
Kolophon
Three Cane Whale
Modulus III
The Nightjar
Spindle Ensemble
and a bonus track by Brixton legends the Moody Boyz: Three Cane Whale’s Brute Angels (mushroom honey remix). It includes extra materials and visuals, including live work by Kathy Hinde.

Buying the log gives you priority booking and offers throughout 2018. If you pay by standing order you also get access to free downloads of any further recordings released in future for as long as the standing order is active (minimum 12 months).

The 2017 Yuletide log comes in the form of a combustible and biodegradable seasoned Kelston beech log. You can keep it, chuck it on the fire or on the compost heap. You can reuse the memory stick for storing documents, films or movies.

It’s an easy and effective way directly to support both the exemplary original local artists whose work is recorded, and also the collective project of location-based music based up at the Old Barn on Kelston Roundhill.

We have hand made just 24, with some sold already.
