  • Unique Matchbox Player and Candle
    USB Flash Drive + Digital Album

    Embedded within the matchbox is a tiny MP3 player featuring the album plus one completely unique bonus track per unit. The listener is invited to light their candle and enjoy the album as it was conceived and produced by both Capac and Harding: at night in an otherwise dark room.

    Each physical package also includes a unique Polaroid photograph taken in Athens or Bristol of a night scene that references - overtly or otherwise - an aspect of one of the poems. All presented inside a grey sliding box, complete with matches.

    Note: the MP3 player requires microusb to power, and standard minijack headphones to listen. There is no skipping of tracks available. You will listen to the album in its entirety, from start to finish.

    The final track is your own unique track, there are twenty-two of these unique bonus tracks and they will be randomly assigned to each order, as will the Polaroids.

AFTER LIGHTS OUT WITH TOM HARDING, the third album from long-distance ‘new music’ collective Capac, comprises ten pieces incorporating and inspired by poems taken from Palewell Press author Tom Harding’s Night Work collection, and features the Northampton poet’s own recitations in and around Capac’s musical explorations of the nocturnal themes in his poems.

This latest full length sees the collective explore new music, minimalism, ambient/experimental electro-acoustic and, of course, Harding’s spoken word world, as Capac offer his poems a new context to that of the original 2017 Palewell Press publication. The poet’s voice is heard alongside the nuances of his recordings — his page-turns and breaths, the creak of his chair — in combination with contemporary extended piano techniques, modular synthesis, altered field recordings, tape manipulations, and the vocals of Capac’s Kate Smith, all recorded and produced in and between Athens, Greece, and Bristol, Liverpool and London, UK.
