Searching for a Sound
  • Searching for a Sound

    The collaborative and polyphonic nature of this book also speaks to the processes and values so embedded in 4AD and its aesthetics. The photography here echoes those old sleeves I have on my shelves and the way they make me feel now thirty years after flicking through them in record shops.’ – from the Foreword by Fraser Mann:


    Beautiful. Clean typography + This Mortal Coil, what is there not to like about this!’ – Peter D. Burgess on Instagram.


    An anthology of writing and art inspired by the music of  This Mortal Coil. Over three albums Ivo Watts-Russell, the founder of 4AD Records, collaborated with the producer John Fryer and musicians on the label to create cover versions of his favourite songs along with incidental atmospheric soundscapes. This anthology features fifteen writers and artists from around the world who have produced fiction, non-fiction, poetry and art as a response to the albums. Digitally printed and perfect bound.
