Album artwork for Holding Patterns by Simon Cullen. The making of this album began on Inishturk, an Island off the coast of County Mayo in Ireland. Simon brought a recording device along with him and took a circumnavigation of the island, along the way recording every gate he encountered; just the sound of them opening and closing again. He was searching for the short, and often eerie songs that gates sometimes sing as they swing open or shut. On returning to the mainland he catalogued the material and turned to exploring ways with which to approach working with it.
