Patch Notes

FACT’s Patch Notes is a performance series that celebrates the art of making electronic music with hardware.

As part of the practice behind Hélène Vogelsinger’s modular synthesizer compositions, she explores abandoned places, connecting with their energies to create immersive moments.

For her Patch Notes performance, she serendipitously stumbled across an abandoned castle in the French countryside.

“The installation and the recording session are always a process within the process, which takes a few hours. Technically it requires a good organisation: three modular cases and hundred of cables, a generator, a camera, lights and again so many cables,” she says.

“It is something really intense, especially in those types of abandoned places, where you have to avoid a lot of obstacles. I love the fact that they have layers of stories and histories, with different occupants, often crossing times, and always full of beautiful and melancholic poetry.”

London-based singer and composer Gwilym Gold releases a special two-track EP of acoustic versions taken from his new 2015 album ‘A Paradise’.

Recorded live at Doug Aitken’s Station To Station event and pressed by The Vinyl Factory Press, the 12” features stripped back versions of ‘Greener World’ and ‘Evergreen’, exposing Gold’s spectral, melancholy sound to the elements.

Released in a limited edition of 300, ‘Greener World’ is packaged with artwork inspired by Kevin Bray’s official video.

The Vinyl Factory partnered with American multimedia artist Doug Aitken and the Barbican to bring the acclaimed Station to Station: A 30 Day Happening to the UK for a month-long, building-wide, art intervention in summer 2015.

For the duration of the event, which featured residencies, installations, live performances, workshops, screenings and more, The Vinyl Factory hosted The Vinyl Factory Recording Studio, providing a space for musicians and artists to experiment and improvise with their music. Gold recorded his two acoustic versions within this studio over the course of two days. These recordings were then pressed into a vinyl edition on The Vinyl Factory Press, our on-site manufacturing plant that was showcased at the Barbican exhibition.

Engineered and mixed by Justin Stanley.
