released in collaboration with kning disk, gothenburg.
elephant & castle is a musical work created by composers matti bye and mattias olsson. it is a journey through forgotten landscapes and a visit to an abandoned amusement park, to the sounds of an underwater orchestra playing broken barrel organs and strange instruments from a sunken ship.
the album was created in relation to the photographic work of martina hoogland ivanow. her images were used for inspiration during the recording sessions, as a visual partition for the music.
the result is presented in a stunningly beautiful box with a vinyl record, a phonograph cylinder, and fourteen photographs.
