FHTAGN is an experimental, spatial music collective with a rotating membership of more than 20 participants from various musical disciplines, including members of Stalebirth, Uneasy Chairs, Chaotic Noise Marching Corps, Cabana, The Colour Out of Space, Sickletree, Moon Dial, and many others. Employing elements of chance-operations, free improvisation, polytonality, atonality and alternative conducting techniques, FHTAGN seeks to deliver a massively immersive musical experience in the traditions of Charles Ives, John Cage and Karlheinz Stockhausen.
For this performance, FHTAGN will surround the audience from every corner of the chapel, providing sounds from a wide range of instruments, acoustic and electric, playing both in unison and smaller combinations for a unique, open exchange of musical ideas and sensibilities.

Each contributor created two mins of raw sound - a single track recorded live with no post-processing. After each set of four tracks arrived, they were blindly put together to create each track - as & when they arrived in Corporal Tofulung's inbox.
The levels were adjusted so that quiet tracks could be heard. Otherwise there was no post production.
A second album is currently in the process of creation...
