Sound artist and film maker Daniel Hopkins releases minimal electronic works under the name Landcrash. With previous works appearing on Rural Colours, and elsewhere, Infinite/Journeys/Travels/Stories was created for the site specific live literature event Station Stories, curated at Manchester Piccadilly Station in 2010.
"Station stories explored the peculiar, unique qualities of railway stations; the waiting, the encounters, the thrill, the loneliness, the joy, the special essence of these in-between worlds, where anything can happen and often does."
Hopkins collected field recordings from the station, creating soundscapes to accompany the live performance focused around them. These tracks provide snapshots of the station environment; the people, and events within it. The result is an intriguing listening experience, carrying a strong sense of place, but also of movement and life being transient.
