“The Atlantic Cable” by Being & the Humble Bee (Russell Burden & Craig Tattersall). Another elegant addition to our jackdaw-style series, this 3 disc set once again returns us to the open water with an examination on the first signals sent on the transatlantic cable system from Valentia, Ireland to Trinity Bay, Newfoundland. Each artist interprets the directional signal on a different disc with an addition a bonus disc of deep sounding salination mixes by Andrew Hargreaves (Boats, Tape Loop Orchestra).

Disc 2: The Humble Bee / East to West
Disc 3: Andrew Hargreaves / (eastwestwesteast)
