Places I have never been.

In a world where nobody could go anywhere I relived a journey I never went on.

Places I have never been embraces the half-truths and subjectivity inherent in making music from field recordings. Locked down in his home studio, The Reverse Engineer tells an uncanny story of a trip that never happened using recordings from trips that did.   

John House’s artwork matches subtly edited, found photographs to each track. The track titles are derived from listener’s early responses to the music, their words and phrases jumbled up and drawn at random.
