This album was recorded in and about and using the sounds of Chalkwell Park in Southend on Sea in England in the summer of 2016. We did a "residency" there and were asked to make pieces about the environment of the park and its surroundings. Each individual track was composed primarily out of location recordings from a specific site, and each piece was hosted on a downloadable phone app which triggered each piece as soon as soon as a user entered its specific zone. We were hosted, charmingly by The Metal Gallery. Thanks!
The album should not be confused with Matmos On the Radio at Southend on Sea, though there are elements common to both of them.

Carl Stone is a master. The tracks match the album cover & are highly hallucinatory. Each one is distinct too, & very different from what I've heard of his earlier work. Nothing jams harder than the closing track "Panchita" though. I must've listened to it over 50 times. Mike DeRoitr
