SoundFjord start crepuscular record label Visible Near Midnight

Sound art organisation SoundFjord is starting a record label called Visible Near Midnight Recordings. The inaugural release is the first record by ADA (aperture.diameter.amplitude), titled Extended Transmissions, and is produced in a limited run of 25. It is recorded on location at the Isle Of Portland, Dorset, and in SoundFjord's Tottenham studio using telephone pick up coils, radios and microphones.

Extended Transmissions is released 5 May on CD-R with handmade packaging. Visible Near Midnight is intended as a sister to SoundFjord's temporary Sound//Space record store that's in situ at V22 in London for the summer – more info on the store here.
