Mark Barrott has assembled a highly personal and organic album around these speeches using electronic and acoustic instruments as one to present a synth-centred orchestral album that sparkles with originality and wit. Indeed 'Memories' achieves an intriguing balance between conjuring up a series of snapshots of a nostalgic past whilst being wholly contemporary in musical vision, whilst 'Remixes' features reinterpretations of the Fading Room tracks by cutting edge downtempo producers, including Rob Da Bank, Chris Coco, The Go! Team and Tunng.
This musical vision of The Fading Room, when performed live by Future Loop Foundation, is combined with live visuals performed and mixed by Myogenic which develops this 'then' and 'now' vision further with a bitter sweet look at the past and the present and the social and political implications for us all. This showstopping specatcle was showcased at groundbreaking live appearences at Sensoria Festival and The Roxy in Prague, where Future Loop Foundation played alongside the Jupiter string quartet.
