A bootlegged record of a space and its echoes.

Recorded on Grain Tower Battery, a Victorian fort on the Isle of Hoo only accessible at low tide which has led a life of repurposing and eventually decay. By the time it was completed in 1855, the original purpose and technology was outdated, and it has never really been in proper use since. A mysterious fate.

The base material for the music was made from reverberations of spaces in the tower in a feedback loop, which was then re amplified back into the building, in a sense amplifying what was already there.

Accompanying the record are two videos by Mio Ebisu, which can be seen here:

Also a website called which is a open archive of impulse responses from public and common space.

This recording was part of Otto's project supported by Sound and Music's New Voices program 2019-2020.
