About

We're currently working on a site-specific installation for the reopening of the Mental Health Museum in Wakefield in May 2014...more news here as it progresses.

Watch our short film inspired by children's encyclopaedias, 'The Sum of All Knowledge' (originally screened as part of Wakefield ArtWalk) here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CoajQ6lPb04&feature=youtu.be

Last year, our music was featured in the 'Broadcast to the Trees' which took place in the Galloway Forest. More details here: http://frenchbloke.tumblr.com/
In addition, our track 'Nautica' was broadcast as part of the NowhereIslandRadio art project. Hear it as part of two mixes here: http://www.mixcloud.com/nowhereislandradio/all-locations-open-call-submissions-mix-2-6am/

Living in neighbouring towns under the watchful eye of Emley Moor mast, Love Without Sound are Abi Bliss and David Badger (https://soundcloud.com/theeldritchkaleidophonic). We can’t agree on how to write a song, but we do agree we should keep trying.
We’re inspired by most things kraut, kosmische and radiophonic, Pram, Low (the band), Low (the album) Arne Nordheim, Seefeel, early Tangerine Dream, Broadcast, Autechre, Angela Carter, Harmonia, honest conversations, happy accidents, the things living at the bottom of the ocean, the things just beyond the corners of our eyes and an enduring sense of wonder.
We hope you like our music – please feel free to send comments, questions and suggestions for musical or visual collaboration our way.

    @Spandril: Thanks! (and hi - I didn't make the connection between you on here and in real life) Yes, it's such a shame, especially as the rain had nearly stopped again by the time we were packing up! But it’s better than being electrocuted, I guess. Er, Sheffield’s a possibility, although neither of us really know anyone there - do you know some people putting on nights who we could get in touch with, perhaps?

    We were talking about making a track inspired by numbers stations a while ago, but it seems you've beaten us to it! (Plus it's probably better than ours would have been)

    @Kauppe: Thanks! It wasn't directly inspired by the poem, no, but by the time we'd nearly finished the track it came up as a possible title, and when we thought about it, it seemed to fit quite well. So retrospectively, perhaps!

    @Bicipital Groove: It's the kind of spacey sustained guitar sounds in the outro (from about 6:40 onwards) - in the style of Robert Fripp. I wasn't actually there when that part was recorded as David came up with it over Christmas, but I think it's done with an e-bow and lots of delay. I'd heartily recommend Fripp & Eno's 'Evening Star' if you like that kind of thing and haven't already heard it! x

    @Bicipital Groove: Thanks! I'm afraid it's not actually named after you, though. Don't ask where the fawns came from, either; they were trotting around in our heads somewhere during the recording process...

    I like this! - what kind of effects did you use to get your sounds? You're right, it would be nice to hear something like this but with some of your sung harmonies in it as well...

    @Will Bryce - Composer: Thanks! Are we allowed to admit that the title came along when the track was nearly finished? But maybe it was lurking in our collective subconscious or something.

    Good work on the harmonies! I'm imagining a gang of you all sat around a campfire, each modelling a different late-60s-style beard/tache combo.. And one of you has a kaftan...

    @Bicipital Groove: Nice collaboration! I think your vocals work together well in terms of sound/texture/timbre/whatever, actually - I think you're probably just picking up on the fact that it's obvious they were recorded in different places. I like the mandolin part, too - it has the reqired light touch.

    @Bicipital Groove: Yep, I get the whole 'whistlestop tour' thing, so I can see why you'd want to keep it quite fast. I think it would be a different sort of song played slower - probably more of a 'nostalgic reflection', I guess...

    Just a suggestion, but have you tried doing the whole song a lot slower? Some of the singing sounds a bit breathless where you're trying to fit all the lyrics in, and I reckon the tune would sound just as nice in a slower, more sustained version. Maybe even half-two thirds the tempo? Of course, you may have already tried and rejected this!
