The Resting Bench was a colaboration between Clutter and Cumbrian poet Ann Wilson in 2006 for an exhibition at The Nest Cafe in Barrow-in-Furness.
The project started with Clutter's Shaun Blezard taking photos of Barrow Island where both artists were living at the time and Ann Wilson wrote a series of poems to fit some of the images.
Shaun then recorded the poems and wrote musical settings for them - creating the original 4 tracks you hear on this release.
The Resting Bench was also performed live including Solfest and was released as a free download on Earth Monkey Productions in 2006.
There was also a successful remix project that saw over 40 remixes from around the world - the best of which were released by EMP - www.archive.org/details/trbrp_tracks
- for free downloads.
Tracks 1-4 were on the original release of The Resting Bench are remastered for this version.
Track 5 is on The first volume of The Resting Bench Remix Project.
Tracks 6-8 are previously unreleased.
