Imbogodom's And They Turned Not When They Went sees Alexander Tucker and Daniel Beban return to the BBC's Bush House for another nocturnal collection of pure analogue tape work. Here the musique concrete worlds are more defined than on 2010's, The Metallic Year. Using live feeds from the Houses of Parliament's bell Big Ben, Tucker and Beban create foreboding landscapes for obscure horror soundtracks where foley techniques of everyday objects turn into threatening phone calls from poltergeist entities trapped inside the warm mixing desk and dusty tape machines. Stretched, slowed, and warped source material takes us back to early electronic synthesis of magnetic tape whilst reveling in the endless possibilities thrown up from processes of analogue experimentation. And They Turned Not When They Went also sees Imbogodom sharpening their song-smithery with Tucker and Beban combining their efforts. Trading between tape manipulator and player, the duo compose, dismantle, and expand their unique brand of songwriting. Psycho-geographic sound worlds map central London's deep dark loam and linger in the wind of New Zealand's remote countryside.
