The 50th release from Fortspring!

10 Years of GENRE
(FORS 07, 2017)

Just as Decade (FORS 01, 2012) celebrated 10 years of releases by Andy Murkin,
the 10 Years of GENRE Special celebrates 10 years of the GENRE series of albums, which
began in 2007 with the simultaneous appearance of 10 albums, drawn from earlier Regular releases.

Most of the tracks here have previously appeared on Regular albums, but some are unique to the GENRE series, and
there is no overlap with the tracks on Decade*

The Sutton Project
(FORS 08, 2020)

This set is the follow-up to The Ouse Washes Project.
All the sounds were recorded in or around the village of
Sutton-in-the-Isle, Cambridgeshire.

The difference between The Sutton Project and The Ouse Washes Project is that
not all the recordings here were made with conventional microphones. A number of
them employ alternative, often self-made, recording methods, including contact microphones,
hydrophones, ultrasonic and electro-magnetic induction pickups, and a binaural
dummy head microphone.

This project includes all the tracks released on the album
Ambient XI: from The Sutton Project (FORG 31, 2020).
