about

Cosmic Neighbourhood is the brainchild of Bristol-based illustrator and musician Adam Higton. With each song acting as a response to a series of paper-and-scissors compositions, 'Collages I' documents the daily goings-on of 'the forest folk within the realm of the Cosmic Neighbourhood.'

Sonically, this tape straddles new and old, taking modular electronics, flutes, bells and softly pattering drum machines, before colouring them all with the amber glow of some forgotten, psychedelic kids' TV programme. Higton's benign toots and echoing jingles bring to mind Daphne Oram's early delay experiments or the meandering playfulness of Tom Cameron. Radiophonic and time-worn, it still somehow sounds like the future.
