“Myddyng" is the Old Norse & Middle English predecessor of contemporary English’s “midden”. Middens are shell mounds, potshard piles, and compost heaps. Depositories for consumed, broken, and abandoned bits.
Tucker’s "Myddyng" is an assemblage of isolated and discarded components from his intricately arranged, animistic drone-folk record "Cold Spring". A spare, uncanny, remnant composition of field recordings, weird tape phantoms, exhumed melodies, and naked voices dug out of the fecund humous of his four-year "Cold Spring" recording process.
All recordings were made on cassette tape by Fletcher Tucker in Big Sur, California between January 2013 and January 2017. Assemblage made in Ojai, California, February 2019. "Myddyng" is an exclusively digital release.
