I have this endearing image in my head of an astronaut paused inﬁnitely on the edge of a black hole, as the explanation of what happens when you get there. I think this comes from a junior school book on space, where everything is simpliﬁed, where wonder is prized over fact.”
Accretions, the A-side of the new 2-track single by Richard Birkin (Emphemetry/Crash of Rhinos) is a soundtrack to that image, made of ﬂoating notes, gentle cello and undulating chords, with the relentless movement of a piano at the centre.
A Lullaby Hymn (Parts I & II) is a piece that captures the development of Birkin’s Emphemetry project. The trio assembled to perform the 2011 album A Lullaby Hum For Tired Streets. After performances ranging from Manchester’s tiny The Castle, to Leeds’ ornate Howard Assembly Rooms and the outstanding Union Chapel in London, the pieces on the album were performed in different ways.
