New track from Richard Skelton's project

Richard Skelton's album as the Inward Circles Belated Movements for an Unsanctioned Exhumation August 1st 1984 has been a highlight of the year, a movement away from the more organic textures of his work as AR* and under his own name to heavier, electronic moods. Now Skelton has made a new Inwards Circles release available on bandcamp, above. The track is based on the music that soundtracked the film that Skelton made to accompany his excellent monograph for Little Toller, Beyond The Fell Wall. It comes with the following extract from Skelton's text: "I can show you where, in the desert of winter, the wind-hover fell for the last time. Can show you how flies and maggots gently prized flesh from bone. How the delicate globe of its skull, which once held the sky and six square miles of vole-earth, was, in turn, mapped and charted by beetles. Buried. In assuming death I have witnessed countless atrocities. In the fields. By the roadside. The verges of woods. I have heard a music and it is delirious. Centuries are as seconds, seconds as centuries."
