Devon Folklore Tapes is a truly unique research and musical publication
series covering and soundtracking the folklore of the South West County of
Devon in volumes of tapes housed in bespoke books.
Exploring mysteries, myths and strange phenomena of the old county.
Each new volume will see two researchers both delving into a particular
area of folklore. Witchcraft, Sea Monsters, The Devil, Lights in the sky
and Pixies are just a handful of areas that will be covered with the help
of old folklorists such as Sabine Baring-Gould and Theo Brown and the
dusty corners of library vaults across the country.
The project will eventually take in all the counties of England creating a
musical bridge between times, saving and preserving old folklore from
obscurity by presenting them with their own contemporary soundtrack. Each
researcher brings his or her own unique musical interpretation on a theme.
The project is intimately handmade with each cassette hand sprayed and presented inside a hollowed out hardback book with hand sewn booklet inlay and hand type set front cover.
Each book is hand numbered and stamped using a unique hand carved rubber stamp. As result of the time spent on each book the release is limited to 24 bespoke editions each with their own unique character and colouring.
