Notes

On Joe Acheson's website

"Lizard Point is the most southerly point of the UK mainland.

Radio pioneer Guglielmo Marconi built a hut there in 1901, to experiment with sending radio signals over longer distances - it was in that hut that the first ever ship-to-shore SOS signal was received.
I spent a week there in August 2016, in the National Trust's first ever sound artist residency.
The "Marconi and the Lizard" EP is the result of that residency."

On Bandcamp

"6th May sees the release of Joe Acheson’s “Marconi & The Lizard” EP, recorded during a sound residency in Cornwall in August 2015 which was commissioned by the National Trust for their Sounds of our Shores project in partnership with the British Library.

In 1900, radio pioneer Guglielmo Marconi built a hut at Cornwall’s Lizard Point - the southernmost tip of the UK mainland - to experiment with sending radio signals over long distances; it was in that hut that the first ever ship-to-shore SOS signal was received. Last summer, composer and producer Joe Acheson, mainly known for his acclaimed work as Hidden Orchestra, spent a week there for the National Trust's first ever sound artist residency (as reported by The Guardian, The Independent and BBC One’s Countryfile) and Marconi & The Lizard is the fascinating result.

Entirely created from natural sounds and man-made noises recorded in the hut and the surrounding landscape, the music on this evocative EP somehow has an electronic feel; the tracks are alive with pulse, natural glitch, deep sub and a richly-textured atmosphere."
