GFR D Cat No.003, Murder Cult – ‘The Folly’ C17 £3
Murder Cult: The work of Benjamin Hallatt, these recordings are live takes with only gongs and bells of various kinds.

Essentially these are completely minimal meditative works. Hallatt has predominantly self-released works on vinyl, tape and CD in the last 10 years, with his early work in defining the sonic palette for the UK band Swimming now licensed to the Tummy Touch label.
