about

It occurred to him that these instances of sensory recollection were somehow moulded into smaller, more fragile instances, and then again into smaller yet. They felt to him almost like a sense of temporary solidarity, or at least the encapsulation of it, as if he were seeing strangers repeatedly on a bus, or train, or plane. Built seemingly from images of light, embedded in mornings or early afternoons of play, perhaps. Through a cloud of events since, he could separate those images that were important from the unimportant, and imagine them, at a rate that puzzled him. He was certain, however, that a strange kind of duality existed in these etched micro-worlds, formed out of what he assumed was memory. With no way of being sure about this, he was in state in which these traces of air, soil and pavement were fueling something new and previously unfelt. It was concerned with time undoubtedly, but in the same way mown grass or drying laundry concerns time. There was a drift, an evaporation, and a scent. The heat of the day had made hair soft, eyes squint and instilled an underlying, almost reflective tension, adding a kind of dulled awareness where there seemed no reliable event to cling to, listen to, sense or observe. It was, he decided briefly, a movement through moments, and the experience of fleeting traces of feeling within them. Not at all a linear progression, but simply a collection, slightly pulsing and gesturing. Slowly built outside, elsewhere. This sensation returned periodically to him as he sat, his foot tapping on the floor, releasing a faint rhythm.

Recorded between the ages of 14 and 19, using an array of homemade stringed and electronic instruments, circuit bent devices, an old pub piano and field recordings, this release by Milo Thesiger-Meacham is a culmination of simply capturing moments, atmospheres, senses and feelings that cannot really be explained with words. ‘Memorate’ was a term used and defined by the folklorist Carl Wilhelm von Sydow in 1934 to convey a sense of supernatural narrative inside personal memory and experience. Although this release is in essence themeless, childhood senses of play and the drift away from certain periods in time, come to the fore in the pieces. With this approach comes instinctive, emotionally intricate, physical and sensory composition and recording. Milo’s paintings, drawings and writing accompany the release.
