Watch a trailer as the adventurous UK trio ready their astonishing motion-sensor piano for display at The Vinyl Factory’s 180 The Strand.
These New Puritans are to follow up their universally acclaimed 2013 album Field Of Reeds with an exhibition displaying the ‘Magnetic Resonator Piano’ (MRP) used on the record. Opening next month, the installation will invite the public to experience and interact with These New Puritans’ unique sound, using a series of sensors to resonate, bend and torment the piano’s strings in order to create startling effects like infinite sustain, crescendos, harmonics, pitch bends and incredible new timbres.
Open to the public from 15th-21st April 2014, Magnetic Field will exploit the impressive and brutalist environment of The Vinyl Factory’s 180 The Strand event space and will available to visit free of charge.
The band will also be releasing a limited 12″ to accompany the exhibition featuring two newly reworked tracks by Jack Barnett and Bark Psychosis using raw material from the Field Of Reeds recording session outtakes. The Magnetic Field EP is limited to just 500 signed and numbered copies and is available to pre-order now exclusively from The Vinyl Factory online shop ahead of its release on 14th April.
