Basil Kirchin
Worlds Within Worlds

Here’s a fab vintage cult classic from Basil Kirchin, first released in 1974 on Island Records, despite being a veritably strange piece of work. Worlds Within Worlds is all about wildly manipulated field recordings, using the hottest tape techniques of the time to create highly atmospheric ambientish sound passages. Reissued by Superior Viaduct.

Basil Kirchin
Worlds Within Worlds (Part I and II)

A deep-cut wonder by Basil Kirchin gets reissued here, granting blessed wider availability to this fine document at last. Worlds Within Worlds is built out of carefully chosen field recordings that have then been treated and layered into abstraction, over which Evan Parker and Derek Bailey were invited to improvise. This reissue adds fine artwork and liner notes to the richly compelling 1971 music. From Trunk.

I Start Counting

Basil Kirchin’s score for the 1970s horror flick I Start Counting is the latest of the trailblazing composer/sound collector’s work to get the reissue treatment from Trunk. This LP contains all six numbers from that woozy, psychedelic soundtrack as well as Kirchin’s music for a 1980s documentary film.

Basil Kirchin
Silicon Chip

Basil Kirchin was an astonishing Hull-based musician and composer, who worked with orchestras, tape machines, avant-garde explorations and pop songs for many years, but with little recognition till Trunk got reissuing after his death. Silicon Chip is a properly funky slice of 1979 disco that jumps right into your head even though you’ve never heard it before. Yellow vinyl 7” on Trunk.

Basil Kirchin Is My Friend – A Trunk Records Sampler

Courtesy of the good people at Trunk, this is a sampler of the music of the experimental music polymath. His oeuvre took in pretty much took in everything from field recordings to jazz to soundtrack music, horror and post punk. With such a rich and varied history of recording this is as good a place as anywhere to begin.
