ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Kris and Amble have taken a modern twist on the notion of ballad writing. In traditional music, ballads would be written to carry the news and / or fables from village to village, telling of love, loss, adventure, battle and death.
We use this idea to tell the story of Leith, but instead of writing lyrical material about the people of Leith, They tell the stories themselves, through oral recordings.

The Living Memory Association collected the memories of older people of working in the various Leith industries, the docks, memories of the river, memories of childhood in the area as well as living conditions, shops and the local community.

Kris and Amble then worked with the recordings, adding in industrial soundscape (such as dock workers sound) to pick out interesting melodic and rhythmic phrases. These phrases acted as the basis for improvisations to create melodies which are inherently fused with the tone and rhythm of the Leith accent and architecture.

Amble and Kris worked with a blend of electronics and traditional instruments to depict something which is both traditional and contemporary in it’s flavour.

The album comes with a gorgeous hand drawn book and a map of the walking routes.
