"Statistics indicate that 'voice-hearing' has a prevalence of between 5% and 28% in any population (www.mentalhealth.org.uk/a-to-z/h/hearing-voices). Unfortunately, many individuals who try to talk to others about their voices become sectioned, pathologized, medicated and stigmatized for the rest of their lives. I made these tracks due to my own personal and professional experiences of this (still) inhumane system. The music herein is intended to capture the oppressive 'atmospheres' of the clinical interview. All voices are there to be heard." - Alistair Thaw (Kindred Spirits)

“I myself am an absolute abyss.”
– Antonin Artaud


released January 18, 2019

All tracks recorded by Alistair Thaw at Border Lair bedroom studio, Sowerby Bridge, Hell.
