Solo Discography: Albums / EPs

Leo Chadburn, Slower / Talker (2021)

"Striking sound-worlds of drifting piano and transparent string harmonies, bold silences and meticulous, grid-like musical structures, which frame understated spoken voiceovers and fleeting song. The album comprises Leo Chadburn's distinctive music for ensembles, written 2011-2020."
Release date: 26 March 2021 | Label: Library of Nothing

Leo Chadburn, The Subject / The Object (2020)

"An intense, individual approach to drone and minimal music, in which voice and language become sound-sculpture. A labyrinthine stream of consciousness gives way to a monolithic "choir" of the composer's vocals."
Release date: June 2020 | Label: Library of Nothing

Simon Bookish, Red and Blue [EP] (2015)

"Drawing on the Cold War correspondence of two 'televisual spectres', an unpredictable collage of spoken word, electronic pop and drifting field recordings."
Release date: November 2015 | Label: Library of Nothing

Simon Bookish, Everything / Everything (2008)

Release date: October 2008 | Label: Tomlab

Simon Bookish, Trainwreck / Raincheck (2007)

"A surreal, electronic radio play, based on dream images of transportation: a sinking cruise liner, a spectral train, a spaceship and a breathlessly calm Boeing 747."
Release date: September 2007 | Label: Library of Nothing

Simon Bookish, Unfair / Funfair (2006)

"Bizarre and full of black humour, the first Simon Bookish album is a bilious set of agitprop sketches, setting wordplay and literary references to harsh noise pop."
Release date: March 2006 | Label: Library of Nothing

Leo Chadburn, Epigram / Microgram (CZ) (2002/13)

"Ambient etudes and experiments, utilising only the sounds of the Casio CZ101 synth. Recorded in 2002 and finally released from the vaults eleven years later."
Release date: 2nd April 2013 | Label: Library of Nothing
