Experiments with artforms, techniques, media and their sell by dates

A sound experiment on Jura

In August 2022, Giles Perring was given the opportunity to explore and record the old stills the had been removed from the Jura Whisky Distillery and reveal the sound hidden in these huge copper chambers. By now their walls were thinned til they were like drum skins, by the slightly acid waters that come from the island’s Market Loch that give the Jura whiskies their flavour.

Listen to the new album from the World Organ

The debut album from the World Organ is released 22.1.21 as a download and a stream by XA Music. Assembled from Giles Perring’s selection of his recordings, made from the installation on the Isle of Jura over 18 months, the album comes as a 60 minute single track. Exploring the catalogue of sounds that the Organ hears and shapes, from swallows and bees via distant sheep and seals, to gales and thunderstorms, Giles describes this album as an ‘episodic’ picture of the bay on the island where the project has originated.
