'Dereliction // Mirror' installation at Islington Mill

A.R.C. Soundtracks have spent summer creating a new sound and film piece using the 5th floor and semi-derelict attic spaces at Salford's Islington Mill as both inspiration and source material. Focussing on the notion of ruins and their potential for reappropriation, the final piece combines a dense, multi-layered soundworld with disorientating, ritualistic visuals to create an immersive, hypnotic work.

Preview: 23rd October - 7pm for drinks and a tour of the installation, 8.30pm for one hour AV show. RSVP here.
Show continues: 24th - 31st October, evenings only.
Our Facebook page also has some work-in-progress galleries.

The Attic Space, Islington Mill, James Street, Salford, M3 5HW.

A.R.C. Soundtracks featured on new futuresequence compilation SEQUENCE8

Proud to say that a new track - 'The Pomona Comet' - has been selected to feature on the final futuresequence compilation album 'SEQUENCE8', alongside Dag Rosenqvist, Matthew Collings, Monolyth & Cobalt, an.rost, Petrels and many more. We've been big fans of these comps for some time, so it's an honour to be included. Our track was written earlier this year, after the 'Archive: Volume One' album was released.

We are big fans of Rock-A-Rolla so it's an honour to be reviewed in their new issue.

Echoes & Dust review

Echoes & Dust have reviewed 'Archive: Volume One'.

"A record with a deep, resonant atmosphere, reminiscent of the likes of Demdike Stare, Svarte Greiner and even Swans at points. 'Archive: Volume One' should prove to be one of the highlights of 2014."

The Skinny review

The Skinny have reviewed 'Archive: Volume One'.

"Its sparse, wintry soundscapes evoke the wind-blasted, twilit moors of northern England. The resulting journey is as dark and troubling as it is beautiful and elegiac."
