Strange Sounds Orchestra digital reissue
12th November 2014

The Strange Sounds Orchestra’s sole release – a 2005 EP – gets a digital reissue with a previously unreleased bonus track. Formed  to record a soundtrack for my 2005 book, Strange Sounds: Offbeat Instruments and Sonic Experiments in Pop, the SSO composed and performed entirely with dulcimers, test oscillators, theremins, stylophones, omnichords, a child’s xylophone, a metal ruler … and that sort of thing.
