FOUND follow up 2015’s futuristic album ‘Cloning’ with a look back at the past in ‘Terra Nova’. Dr William Clark Souter travelled to Antarctica in 1903 on board the Terra Nova ship bound to rescue Captain Scott’s RRS Discovery from ice. Souter was a junior doctor based at Aberdeen Royal Infirmary who was also a keen photographer and was allowed to document the expedition. FOUND were commissioned by Grampian Hospital Arts Trust to create a response to Dr Souter’s photographs that are housed within the University of Aberdeen Special Collections. The project culminated in the exhibition ‘TERRA NOVA’ at The Suttie Arts Space in ARI, from December 2015 to February 2016 and the production of this record. On ‘Terra Nova’ the sound of FOUND is wreathed in a fog of analogue synthesizers where once it buzzed with brittle guitars.
