Kimberlin is an experimental film set on the tiny Isle of Portland off the south coast of England, examining the phenomenon of insular politics and Brexit post-2016. Synthesiser wizard Abul Mogard delivers its haunting and alluring soundtrack, constructed from field recordings and an array of retro technology.

Abul Mogard busts out his modular synthesizer(s), Farfisa organ and field recordings to soundtrack Duncan Whitley's film 'Kimberlin'. The film and accompanying spatial sound work is constructed around the apparent discovery of an underground cinema cavern on the Isle of Portland in Dorset. Its title is essentially vernacular for an outsider, foreigner or stranger. Abul Mogard's sounds here are very much in keeping with the vibe of previous works - no doubt why he was commissioned to soundtrack the film. They ooze a forlorn feeling of isolation or a hidden, secret place. Although it doesn't quite have the hefty emotional impact of his "proper" i.e non-soundtrack albums, if you've melted into your armchair to the tranquil vibes of his previous records then I'm pretty sure you'll dig this as a standalone work i.e separated from the film - just like HTRK's recent 'Over The Rainbow' ambient soundtrack. Abul Mogard’s productions generally have a foggy, mysterious tone with slightly fuzzy edges but this one veers into somewhat darker, slightly bleaker realms.
