Transfer/3: Flying Machines is the third part of the 7 inch single series
"Transfer" by Anne-James Chaton and Andy Moor. Comes in a poster
sized folded sleeve.
Side A: A stirring piece in which Chaton reads out a list of mysterious
dates: only later in the song will it become clear that these are dates
of the most fatal plane crashes in world history. The music forms a sound-scape
based on fragments of conversation between pilots and air traffic controllers,
excerpts from black box recordings found after the accidents.
Side B: A recounting of the different types of aerodynamic movements,
as described in Leonardo Da Vinci's text "Carnet sul volo",
arranged by Anne-James, and backed by dense driving rhythmic guitar sounds
suggesting a beat, without any drums.
