Open My Records To Avoid Seam Splitting

In order to ship your records to you in the safest way possible, and to avoid seam splits, we recommend removing the record from the jacket when shipping. That said, we will never open sealed records and do this without your permission. If you would like your records shipped to you this way, please add the option featured below to your cart.

We will place your jacket and record inside a FREE protective poly.

In making Chimet, Mining approached both the data and it's musical results as a locus of synergy, allowing their respective passions for sailing, weather, sea, sound design and improvisation to intersect and manifest in a singular musical statement. Over a period of seven days in October 2017, the devastating Atlantic Hurricane Ophelia fed straight into another weather event, known as Storm Brian in the UK. Mining mapped the data from this storm onto various musical values and parameters, including harmonic range, pitch, density and volume - resulting in a continuous piece of electronic sound design that directly traces the contours of the two storm systems. After several iterations, improvised instrumental performances were added on piano, cello and synthesiser. The original 2,016 lines of source data streams (collected every five minutes between 0030 on October 16th 2017 and 0025 on the 23rd) have also been visualised in the album artwork, with each of the 504 LP sleeves possessing a unique vertical visualisation strip and individual timestamp, corresponding to a 20-minute period of the storm sequence.
