Experiments with textures, partly inspired by Tudor polyphonic works (Thomas Tallis et al) some of which have been sampled on this album (albeit usually warped beyond recognition...).

More Songs About Elves & Flowers (2010)

33 tracks by Frankenstein Sound Lab

A collection of 33 short [sometimes very short] pieces recorded at various times since 2005 and not otherwise released. Due to a severe imagination drought, they've been numbered I to XXXIII instead of being given titles. Clue to the album title ? Check out track IV...

IT WAS A DARK & STORMY NIGHT... (2007)

22 tracks by Frankenstein Sound Lab

Well its not really a concept album. There's a tenuous narrative thread, certainly, concerning the overthrow, flight and subsequent execution of the Pope, but its not really a... Ok, its a concept album. Taking the prophecy of the 12th century St Malachy - that the next Pope will be the last one - this album imagines the overthrow of the Vatican coming to pass, and in the process invokes the ghosts of not only St Malachy but also William Blake. You cant have too many spectres, thats always been our rule of thumb. Incidentally, the title track really was recorded on a dark & stormy night...perhaps some of the elemental ambience transfered itself to the track ? The thunderclaps came from a special effects album, though....

JOE MEEK SHALL INHERIT THE EARTH (2005)

16 tracks by Frankenstein Sound Lab

FSL's 5th album and the first to be created using digital technology, so quite appropriate that it bears the name of that maverick British sound engineer, producer and songwriter - Joe Meek. The title track imagines the seconds after Meek's shotgun suicide, with his spirit blasted into orbit like a Telstar satellite.
