MSCTY Explores new ways to experience the world through sound and space. MSCTY Creates collaboration between physical, tangible, imagined landscapes, and sonic [space is the] place; from this we seek new ways of reading the world around us. MSCTY Invites criticism; inquiry; openness; suggestion; community. MSCTY Believes that the only boundaries [the only barriers] are dogmatic constructs to be broken down! MSCTY Believes that the quality of sound environments is as critical as quality air to breathe. No less than the Phuture of Sound is at stake: 5, 8, 6, we are MSCTY!
IN THE SPRING
Welcome to the latest edition of MSCTY_ZINE. What has transpired in the time between, you ask?
Well, the archive is slowly but surely growing into the still-shiny-new site. Check out our selection from this below of some recently rediscovered adventures in Singapore [w/ Jon Hopkins among others]. Speaking of the archive, we couldn’t let the passing of cassette tape inventor Lou Ottens go unmentioned, so we've dug into the vaults to unearth a 2017 homage to the humble tape [+ a few years on it's interesting how much more of a revival the format has enjoyed since then].
Moving to the present and Spring sees us launch a sonic exploration of the Trans-Pennine Express that is The Rochdale Canal – through the eyes of the brilliant Lone Taxidermist.
We are also delighted to share a new MSCTY_STUDIO collaboration that Londoners can experience [in person!] soon – the Japan Pavilion at London Design Biennale, which we hope while travel is troublesome may help form international connections through sound.
Speaking of which, hope ye listeners enjoy our new Tokyo-based series MSCTY_Radio Tokyo on Resonance FM as much as we like making it. Broadcasting on Sunday afternoons at 1500 UK time + to the world online, too.
