A Quiet Corner In Time began life as a sound work created by composer Simon Fisher Turner for renowned ceramicist Edmund de Waal’s installation at the Schindler house in Los Angeles. Fisher Turner and de Waal’s collaboration is a metamorphosis of that work into a standalone album release. The album represents the first time de Waal has collaborated so closely with a musician, and draws Simon Fisher Turner’s past into the present as it references his ​early sound work for Derek Jarman's films (he worked with Jarman from Caravaggio up to his final work, Blue). A Quiet Corner In Time brings together Fisher Turner’s field recordings collected with de Waal in Vienna and LA, alongside placed materials and architectural interventions: porcelain vessels, furniture, and vitrines. This huge soundworld combines elements of de Waal’s own history, detailed in his 2010 memoir The Hare With Amber Eyes; the Schindler House itself; its former resident John Cage, along with sounds swapped with Ryuichi Sakamoto into a meditative drama, poised between action and stasis, mischief and grace.
