They make sounds for what we see, experiments with wood, glass and air for half-formed things. These small shards and movements can be scooped up together and rolled into a shape something like a place or a landmark. lt;i The Tangled Beams

The Focus Group is the work of Ghost Box co-founder Julian House, whose work as a graphic designer has graced sleeve art by Broadcast, Stereolab, Oasis, Primal Scream, Can and many others. House’s music reflects his collaged design work, it’s woven together from fragments of electronics, heavily processed samples and exotic instrumentation. It’s an uncanny and atmospheric sound that invokes memories of British psychedelia, Italian Horror movies and eastern European animation. Stop-Motion Happening LP, CD & Download. Sketches and Spells LP, CD & Download. this is an archaeology of emotion, a philosophically motivated exploration of the power of not just one’s childhood memories, but of the collective unconscious. a simultaneously playful and unsettling electronic psychedelia that’s distinctly Ghost Box and richly rewarding.

Released on Warp Records). Lettris is a curious tetris-clone game where all the bricks have the same square shape but different content. Each square carries a letter. To make squares disappear and save space for other squares you have to assemble English words (left, right, up, down) from the falling squares. Boggle gives you 3 minutes to find as many words (3 letters or more) as you can in a grid of 16 letters.

Notes

"A collection of individuals... an empty church hall, hoofprints, mirrors, echoes, sequences of ordered greenery, televisual images, fonties and ortres. They make sounds for what we see, experiments with wood, glass and air for half-formed things. These small shards and movements can be scooped up together and rolled into a shape something like a place or a landmark." The Tangled Beams M.B. Devot
