"Husk is the first product of an ongoing collaboration between Jonathan Coleclough and Murmer (US born composer Patrick McGinley). They first met in 2002 after appearing on the compilation LP Chaleur, and soon began work on the material that would become Husk. Sharing a fascination with using found sound in their music, Husk includes recordings of refrigerators, thunderstorms, sheep, car horns, ferryboats, windblown sand, crackling charcoal, as well as more conventional instrumental sounds including a variety of percussion instruments. Much of the music started as live improvisation, in one case during a radio broadcast on McGinley's regular Framework slot on the London-based radio-art station Resonance FM. These live recordings have been carefully edited and mixed over several years."
