Typographic Music and The Sound ABC

I recently wrote a feature for the upcoming issue of it's nice that's publication, You can pre-order the next issue now: Issue 4
The article is about visual music, the sounds of colours and some information on my exploratory work on the subject. if you check out the Music page on my site there are a few pieces of work up to have a look at. 
I have a number of pieces on my site which maybe are a little hidden away, you have to delve deep to find them. This piece is one of them, and one of my favorites it's based on recorded sound and typography.

Villagers, Conor J. O'Brien

I've had a few albums on rotation this past week or so, but mainly 'Becoming A Jackal' by irish band Villagers, founded by Conor O'brien. 
The album seems to creep in through the floorboards, and make it self at home uneasily on your shelf, I say uneasily in that the album is at times quite haunting and sinister, like you're being asked to enter a secret doorway which has just appeared in your house, not knowing quite what to expect on the other side.

Here is a beautiful acoustic rendition of Pieces.  Also i noticed he's using a Yairi Parlour guitar, I saw a nice Yairi on ebay the other day, brazillian rosewood and amazing inlays.
