Handstitched* is pleased to announce the new album by Ishmael Cormack.

Maple Finch was conceived through multiple thought channels with an approach to nature and the outdoors, the six pieces of work have a familiar theme running through them. From the perspective of the bird and its surroundings and habitat to technical elements which are in-turn connected to organic field recordings, reverbs and natural noise created during the process. Maple Finch integrates real-time-playback, multi-layered tape loops and acoustic elements along with intricate sound design - giving it a warm and uncondensed edge.

A beating heart and cosmic soul can be heard running through the duration of Maple Finch, this will eventually be part of an installation - a series of vessels that contain the items that the Finch will collect during springtime, items which are essential for nest building for their offspring.

The journey of the full-length release brings-together elements of spring, new life, adventure and a meditative journey through the season. It is released to coincide with astronomical spring in the UK.

Thanks for listening.
