Concrete Antenna / RS003
Created by Tommy Perman, Simon Kirby and Rob St. John, Concrete Antenna is an LP of new music inspired by their installation at Edinburgh Sculpture Workshop.
This release, our third Random Spectacular project, is a limited edition deluxe package including: a 12” vinyl album; art prints by Tommy; a series of short essays and a specially designed tide table.
The album’s packaging has been crafted from exquisite materials with as much attention to detail as the music. The outer sleeve has a triangular die-cut aperture allowing you to choose your own cover by selecting and rotating the enclosed artworks.

"Crystalline piano, clocks, voices, birdsong, water and resonating electronics create a spring-warm sense of place and wonder"
“Blending dreamily ambient keyboard melodies with environmental evocations…it offers an attractive distillation of the installation experience. A marker too of rising levels of engagement with auditory histiography in public art”
"Alongside sounds derived from the structure itself the trio seamlessly blend in piano, brass, children at play, birdsong and a bouncing pingpong ball in a quietly affecting sculpture in sound."
"Without a shadow of a doubt, Concrete Antenna is one of our records of the year"
CAUGHT BY THE RIVER
"This combination of artistic packaging, informative essay and evocative recording is a credit to all of the people involved, from musicians to designers. Even without the visuals, the music impresses; “Church Bells” is especially lovely."
