Missing Organs — Old Speakers
Release March 2017
Austria / UK

Missing Organs is Tristan Bath, a British musician and writer based in Vienna, Austria. "Old Speakers" unfolds an infinite variety of instruments, rhythms, and techniques, all refined and reworked, somewhat accidentally, into a document of personal and international turmoil during which they came to life. "Old Speakers" is his Brexit album; a document of the fear, silent chaos, and bitterness in European society that surfaced in 2016. Field recordings and improvisations formed the basis of the music, including mountain winds from Upper Austria, a violin torn furiously on a paranoid night in South London, rusted ferry engines between the Canary Islands, and randomly sketched melodies on long trips across the continent. Like a sonic diary, "Old Speakers" is necessarily filled with fleeting thoughts and psychedelic cuts, assembled around rhythms of industrial strength and rusted structures on a gloomy journey through the artist's psyche.

All instruments and sounds by Tristan Bath. Completed in Vienna and London 2015-2016. Mastered by Felix-Florian Tödtloff at Ætherweight in Berlin. Photos and artwork by Daniel Castrejón.
