Maps and Diagrams

Maps & Diagrams is Tim Martin (Atlantis/Black Elk/Bluhm). Moving to Handstitched for Mosaic he strips back the glitchy beats and leaves just the glitch and his stunning synthesis to create digital soundscapes, but it doesn't reach drone levels, more...view item »

Maps & Diagrams

Tim "Maps and Diagrams" Diagram returns this week with another sinfully limited collection of slow, warm ambient subtlety. The 14 tracks on 'Alluvium' are split into three numbered sections, and accordingly have been released not only on a regular CD limited to 50 (which is what we have here) but also three 3" CDs in a smaller edition of just ...view item »

Electra's Discovery

It’s been a wee while since we’ve had a mini-CD on Handstitched, the label lovingly run by Tim Diagram aka Maps & Diagrams. This is the second Atlantis release on the label and follows cassettes on ...view item »


Quite nice-looking artwork on this one...the picture on the front of its sleeve is laser-etched into the card rather than printed. Nice. On the CD we've got Tim Diagram and his friend Mark Kuykendall making minimal drifty ambie...view item »

I'll talk about the sexiness of how it looks cos it's one of the fittest relea...view item »

Home Is Where The Ghost Is

'Home Is Where The Ghost Is' is the debut full length record from collaborators Tim Martin and Charles Sage, known collectively as Hessien. They are creators of a super restrained form of ambient music that merges subtle melodies with waves of breezy drones which makes for particularly relaxed listening. Guitars play a prominent role on 'Home is...view item »


In between hanging around with Aussie sound art artist chap called Charles Sage, Tim Martin (Maps & Diagrams) has been hob knobbing and hanging around with Dennis Nilsen and Jeremy Bamber, Crazy times! Tim & Charles (no Jeremy an Dennis though...) have created some music under the guise of Hessien. They've collaborated to make a rather lovely 5...view item »

Maps & Diagrams

Part 2 of the Maps And Diagrams limited cork series is in. These are 3" CD's limited to 50 and they come in cork sleeves which are hand stitched. Hence the label being called Hand Stitched. It all makes sense.... This one is called Koom and it continues his path down a more ambient route. It's a lovely combination of acoustic guitars, electronics...view item »

Maps & Diagrams

Maps And Diagrams is back with a series of new limited 3" CD EP's. Each will be limited to 50 copies, we'll have 40 to sell and once they're gone they're gone. They come lovingly created in a hand stitched cork sleeve and a (small) random selection will come with a free notepad. He's spent some time on these buggers. They're well nice looking ...view item »
