about

In October 2020, Audio Obscura released 'Love In The Time Of The Anthropocene' an album which was a culmination of around three years work about the family unit, parenthood and awareness of climate change. It focussed on the idea of the Anthropocene - a geological term to describe the most recent period in Earth's history when human activity started to have a significant impact on the planet's climate and ecosystems - and crucially an impact which will be impressed for ever more in the earths crust. The work and its follow up is a reflection of what it means to be alive at this moment in time, at the dawn of environmental collapse.

Adventures In The Anthropocene is a follow up to this album, it features a 28 minute 'Live' performance, originally broadcast in January 2021 of which key parts of the original album are reworked in new ways.

Also present here are 5 new tracks and 3 remixes. Of the remixes, all originally appeared on the Love In The Time Of The Anthropocene album. Goodbye Holocene is remixed by revered electronica artist Robin Rimbaud aka Scanner. Kim Rueger aka Nashville Ambient musician Belly Ful Of Stars remixes Love Is... one of the stand out tracks from the original album. The last remix is by Swiss based artist Rupert Lally who offers a radical reworking on Radio Anthropocene.

Adventures In The Anthropocene was created and produced by Neil Stringfellow (Audio Obscura) 2017-2021.

The sound is mainly odd electronics, melting the wide spectrums of electro-acoustic music, musique concrète, idm and occasional field recordings, with post-classical minimal leanings.
