44.1 kHz 32-bit FP Stereo
An album constructed from a single sound source, a field recording taken at Selhurst Railway Station, London (UK) in 2019, which has been cut up, stretched, manipulated, and stuck back together into roughly the shape of some songs, presented here.
You can listen to the original field recording at this link:
"At first glance Platform 2 could appear to be a nod to liminality, however this is not where it makes its home. In actuality, the piece moves through a haze of aggressive and confrontational soundscapes, passing by fragments of the everyday to eventually settle with a dark, pulsating blandness. [...] Each track brings something different to the table; an incongruity reflected in their naming convention. The album feels very transitive, fitting given its subject matter, as we traverse innocent curiosity through to suffocating panic attack." - Honor Ash, ninetalescollective.org

Josh Philpott (b.1994, Birmingham, UK) is an artist working across sculpture, drawing, site-specific intervention, text, and sound. He incorporates elements of poetry, music, conceptualism, and the built environment by way of reappropriation of found materials, drawing upon such interests as (but not limited to) psychogeography, absurdist humour, and midwestern-emo. His work is also invariably, if usually unconsciously, informed by the circumstances of living with the chronic illnesses of Cystic Fibrosis and CF-related diabetes. He graduated with a BA (Hons) degree in Sculpture from Camberwell College of the Arts. In 2021 he established his musical project Song of Ungrounding and self-released his first album on Bandcamp. Currently he is a member of the Conditions Studio Programme. He lives and works in London (UK) but has been shielding in Somerset (UK) since March 2020.
