Story Teller 2: Project R.O.Y
A poetry about madness meet broken mechanical sounds with story teller vocals, its called Project R.O.Y. is totally dystopian and anarchy, there is some new stuff arrived in my inbox, and woww... Project R.O.Y is a Lovecraftian travelogue detailing a family man's decent into madness, while in search of a mythical being. Storyteller is a collaboration between writer & occasional filmmaker Bruce McClure and sound artist Bjørn Hatleskog.

Some artistic musical, sounds like travelogue detailing a family man's decent into madness, while in search of a mythical being. Imagine a dystopian parallel universe populated solely with millions of Arab Strap clones, capable of producing only broken machine music. Storyteller is a collaboration between writer & occasional filmmaker Bruce McClure and sound artist Bjørn Hatleskog. 

This second instalment in the series is presented in cassette form in homage to their namesake (the nineteen eighties children's magazine and tape series published by Marshall Cavendish). The illustrations were provided by Chris Wright of Turbo Island. It is due for release on the 4th of July; Bjørn Hatleskog's work explores the nature of feedback loops, noise and interference and their application via mechanical automation. These ideas are investigated through the construction of modular robotic devices which are combined to form generative sound installations. 

Since 2002 he has been running the Adaadat record label, as well as releasing music on other labels including Benbecula, Seed, Rolax and Invitro, under the monikers Romvelope and Kema Keur. Along with Bruce McClure, he was also a member of live art/noise performance group Le Couteau Jaune; Bruce McClure recently completed a lo-fi, zero-budget, indie, psychological black comedy feature film called District Nurse. In 2000 he co-founded an electronic label called Seed with Joshu Doherty (Posthuman, Altern8) and Richard Bevan (also from Posthuman). 

He collaborated with the composer Wojciech Rusin for a radio play called 'The Garden' which was broadcast on BBC Radio 6 The Freakier Zone and Glasgow based art radio, Radiophrenia. McClure is also a regular poetry contributor to Bristol based skateboard magazine Dog Piss. 

He also makes an appearance on the new album Mutant City Acid by Posthuman.  "This was a real treat. I wonder why more stories don't have some sort of sound collage for atmosphere? Storyteller may just have stumbled across something really special." Mr Olivetti (Freq) "So, within these inserted events, we get into the body of the beast. The story! An affair between a plant and a man. An odd topic but interesting enough. 

All sorts of amusing happenings. I guess this is a preview, a brief exploration into a world most similar and most unknown." Caffeinate (Yeah I know it Sucks) "Bruce McClure & Bjorn Hatleskog host a communion with a vegetation deity. Casual observations from the foyer of the Mountain King. An ode to etheric transmissions, electro-acoustic night terrors, suggestive drones & dystopian sea shanties."Mark Westall (Fad Magazine)
