Maps and Diagrams - Differential Equations
Inspired by a sound of archival nature and modular-themes, releasing a new mini album on both Numb Capsule records & séance press, Maps and Diagrams creates a sound for space, for short-lived journeys and small commutes into the unknown. Some of life’s travels take longer because of the un-seeable – the unthinkable and the unbelievable – we never know what hurdles may arise through our trip into the inner-self, discovering spatial entity, uncovering and recollection – subsequently, without completing this venture we can never move forward. Each track featured was made specifically for cassette and explores alternate dimension and momentum, where time can for once be ignored, leaving the listener to focus on each piece as a separate voyage / mermēra.
Since releasing a track on the RND_0.34873349921 compilation on the Pause_2 label in 2001, Maps and Diagrams has appeared on many well-repsected labels, such as: Static Caravan, Nomadic Kids Republic, Beko DSL, Fluid Audio, Time Released Sound, Chemical Tapes, Smallfish, Toytronic, Expanding Records and both Moamoo and Symbolic Interaction in Japan – to name but a few. Tim also appeared on the world-famous John Peel show amongst other radio broadcasts, both online and in the real world. Tim runs the Handstitched* label in the UK which specialises in bespoke, handmade packaging for the more electro-acoustic and drone-like elements of his work, and he is involved in audio-visual commissions, including art gallery installations and music videos for a global clothing brand. As well as Maps and Diagrams, Tim also records music under the Atlantis name and works in collaboration with Genoveva Kachurkova as Bluhm, with Charles Sage as Hessien, alongside Rob Lyon as Somme and in the neo-classical quartet, Black Elk.
