Steven Legget – Bathhouse
The latest full-length offering from Firecracker comes especially anticipated: Steven Legget’s environmental / modern-classical testament to his native Newcastle’s Turkish Baths, a space both introspective and communal, relaxing and rejuvenating.
Emerging form the steam of a live performance the Turkish Baths, edited and merged with outerworld recordings made on the islands of Paxos and Loutro in South Crete, Legget’s ode is fabricated evocatively from aquatic sounds, stirring strings, languid percussion, roomy piano and cavernous reverberations. Legget effects the bath house as a significant emotional, interpersonal and cultural sanctuary.
Beautifully screen printed two-color double gatefold. All profits from the sales of this LP will be donated to the charity Waves for Water.
