Oh I really dig NotLD, but yes indeed- Mad Max is fierce! The band apparently managed to get endorsement for their rescore from the original cast and George Miller his bad self!

#111523 Last day of our Morricone Youth competition- buy any MY release from our store and go into the draw to win exclusive test pressing in a one-off sleeve (see vid above!)

Totally up for grabs, we've only got 10 entries so far- decent odds!

#112823 Thank you Red, beat me to it!

I was honoured to take part in this amazing, ambitious project, and created an album's worth of material collaborating with local people in the area of Birmingham where I grew up. I also designed and shepherded the LP, which references one of my all time favourite albums which is very appropriate to this project: The Langley Schools Music Project.

Ondes Positives are proud to present this special limited vinyl release of excerpts from 'for-Wards' - an exciting contemporary music project featuring ten composers including:
JUSTIN K BROADRICK [Jesu, Godflesh, Napalm Death],
PRAM [Domino Records],
GRANDMASTER GARETH [Composer of 'Pool Panic' / 'Loot Rascals' game OSTs],
XHOSA COLE [BBC Young Jazz Musician, 2018]
and O/P's own SCOTT JOHANNSSON.

Through soundtrack, electronica, electro-acoustic, minimalism, jazz, library, dubstep and orchestral composition, these tracks take adventurous listeners on a fascinating journey through a diverse modern city-scape.

'for-Wards' was created by one of it's composers, Bobbie-Jane Gardner, to explore the sounds and communities of Birmingham, the UK's diverse second city. Each of the ten composers was assigned a district with which they had a strong connection, working with local community groups and residents to build a library of hyper-local field recordings and generate compositional ideas.
These workshops became the basis and inspiration for the artists' works, which were performed in full during a series of live concerts across the city between 2017 and 2018.

Scott Johannsson created the forty minute minimalist audio-visual/environmental piece 'IRIS', incorporating archive materials, local history, spoken word, Super 8mm film loops, analogue synths and electronics, church organ, guitar and field recordings.
