    Sunrise Ocean Bender-radio show-artifact report 37 of 52a

    Vic Mars, Keith Seatman, Field Lines Cartographer and Poylpore’s tracks from the album were played on two episodes of Sunrise Ocean Bender’s radio show on WRIR FM. The show’s playlists can be found here and here and they can be listened to at Mixcloud here and here.

    Mark Losing Today-The Sunday Experience-The Restless Field-A Year In The Country

    Mark Barton included the album in amongst his cultural wanderings at The Sunday Experience:

    “(Pulselovers’ Lonely Puck)… a wonderfully serene and affectionate love note mailed out from across the outer edges of the cosmos, a transmission from a long lost and forgotten outpost if you like, twinkle toned and radiantly awash in what sounds like shimmering cosmic church bell celebrations…”

    Visit that here and here.

    A Closter Listen-logo-3 in a row

    The Quietened Cosmologists was also included in amongst some rather fine company at A Closer Listen’s Fall Music Preview. Visit that here.

    Field Line’s Cartographer and A Year In The Country’s tracks from the album were played amongst the furrows, pastures and fields of The Unquiet Meadow radio show on Asheville FM. Visit the playlists for those shows here and here and their home page at Asheville FM here.

    Howlround-Robin The Fog-home page graphic-The Quietened Cosmologists

    In a rounding-the-circle manner (or should that be rounding-the-orbit?), the ever busy Howlround and Robin The Fog include the album at their Howlround site, in amongst their activities at Supernormal, The Delaware Road, Sonic Waterloo etc. Visit that here

    Robin The Fog-website banner

    …and at Robin’s own site here (where it can be found amongst the likes of the ten year compilation Lessons from Front & Follow and a centennial edition compilation from Tape Worm).

    Test Transmission Archive-Keith Seatman banner-four in a row

    …and finally, in a further rounding the circle manner, Keith Seatman included the album at his Test Transmission Archive site, where you can find it nestled amongst the likes of his posts on The Cramps, The Focus Group, visits to decommissioned Cold War sites, his own releases etc. Visit that here.

    A tip of the hat to all involved, much appreciated.

    Cosmologists-Night booklet-page 2 and Night edition

    The Quietened Cosmologists is a reflection on space exploration projects that have been abandoned and/or that were never realised, of connected lost or imagined futures and dreams, the intrigue and sometimes melancholia of related derelict sites and technological remnants that lie scattered and forgotten.

    It features audiological explorations by Field Lines Cartographer, Pulselovers, Magpahi, Howlround, Vic Mars, Unit One, A Year In The Country, Keith Seatman, Grey Frequency, Time Attendant, Listening Center, Polypores and David Colohan.

    More information on the album can be found here.
