Where to Build in Stone [Live Recording]

Inspired by the shapes and sounds of Kingston upon Hull, Where to Build in Stone is an audio-visual project that draws on the sonic and visual backdrop of an urban landscape.

Performed with a variety of electronic and acoustic instruments, the piece is a vivid soundscape embroidered with evocative melodies that evoke a mysterious and oddly beautiful side of the city.

The visual counterpart explores Hull over the course of a day, focusing on the quiet drama in the scenes that are everywhere and overlooked: the familiar seen from an unfamiliar perspective.

Commissioned by Serious.

 

About Numb Mob

Since forming, Hull-based duo Numb Mob have become an adventurous alternative outfit with avant-garde sensibilities: producing music which explores the relationship between electric and organic worlds.

Taking on board influences like John Carpenter, Portishead, Simon Fisher Turner, James Holden and Boards of Canada, they’ve arrived at a visually charged sound that is both familiar and alien.
