Album Notes
It is 1961. The Tether project is complete. The first human has been sent to space, hanging by a gigantic cord on the fringes of Mother Earth's swaddling gases. The hopes of a world rests on his shoulders.

And then there is Sergei Letnyn. The guinea pig. But you have not heard of Sergei. Not yet.

An original and startling science fiction story by David Hartley set to the energetic soundscapes of electronica artist (murmur). The absurdity of a Philip K. Dick tale, the atmosphere of an Andrei Tarkovsky film, set to music influenced by artists such as Flying Lotus, Lemon Jelly, David Bowie, and Steve Roach 'Tether' is a strange and unique sonic experience. Visit the blog of the writer to download the words of the story for free.

Artist Biographies:

David Hartley is tethered to Manchester, but his origins lie in Preston where he grew up in a small house with a long garden. An ardent believer in mythmaking over genre hiding, he tends to write short tales about strange things, but likes to give those things a fighting chance.

He is one fifth of the writing collective #Flashtag and was a founder member of the Manchester Speculative Fiction Writing Group. In 2011 he won Best Blog’ at the Manchester Blog Awards for his film review site Screen150. The following year he won the Lancashire Writing Hub’s Flash Fiction Competition with an 165 word ghost story. His first collection of flash
fictions is due out in late 2012 with Gumbo Press.

Find him online at abarrelroll.blogspot.com and @lonlonranch.

(murmur) is Rick Hartley, unmistakeable brother of the above, with a similar house and garden background. He resides in Manchester’s sister city Salford with a deaf cat and interchangeable foster kittens. Permanently attached to some kind of
instrument, he turned his skills to electronica while at university joining up with a fellow synth enthusiast to form
the beats and bleeps duo Bug & Leaf.

(murmur) is his solo endeavour which is steadily growing a dedicated fan base thanks largely to his energetic live shows and a unique flair with remixes. The (murmur) music combines a huge range of influences, all the way from Motown to Dubstep, washing them in a bath of psychedelic textures, timbres, and sonic trickery, always playing some sort of musical game with the listener and always winning.
