During Spring 2015, Eamon Sprod (Tarab) and Eric La Casa spent one week to record on waste grounds, at the north east of Paris, and along the canal Ourcq. Spaces which are somehow both inside yet apart from the city; waiting spaces from which to listen to the threshold of the city.

Sub Rosa
The first (and the last) concert of mythic Kosmiche Belgian band Kosmose (1973-78): unreleased songs recorded and mixed in March 1975, something undoubtedly cosmic but with a DIY, home-made edge, dirtier than clean, noisier than technology-based.
