‘Contemplating the idea of homesickness- within the home. When life is lived on the domestic grid, in rooms and tasks- reframing the day- to give sound the picture that once held the frame. Words stretched thin over a lifetime ﬁnally became inaudible into simple daily tasks’. Keeley Forsyth
From Isolation is a new series of collaborations organised by Trestle Records as a reaction and ‘antidote’ to the self-isolation and quarantine measures we are currently undergoing due to the Covid 19 pandemic. We are contacting musicians to collaborate as a trio in the making of an EP achieved through ﬁle sharing via the internet. The concept is simple - Each musician starts a track and passes it to the next for them then to add their section.
This is not intended to be a pain staking, over thought, over dubbed experience but rather one of expression, chance, reaction and mobilising our community to use this time for something new, that wouldn’t have occurred otherwise. To instigate a few days of communication and collaboration with the sole purpose of making new music, often among musicians who have not previously worked together or even actually met in person.
We are intending to release these EP’s regularly for as long as the ‘lockdown’ continues. They will be posted as soon as we have them and be available at www.trestlerec.com
