about

Available as LP / CD / DL from Ghost Box:
ghostbox.greedbag.com/buy/chanctonbury-rings-0/

A spoken word and music project by writer Justin Hopper and folk musician Sharron Kraus. It also features Ghost Box’s own Belbury Poly. Based on live performances of Hopper’s 2017 book The Old Weird Albion , it’s a poetical, autobiographical and psychogeographical account of his experiences at Chanctonbury Ring on the West Sussex Downs.

The album is a blend of folk, electronic music, poetry, prose and environmental sound. Kraus’s electro-acoustic soundscapes and songs interweave with Hopper’s rich, intimate narration. With Belbury Poly contributing production throughout and bookending the work with a memorable theme tune.

Sleeve design by Julian House and liner notes by Justin Hopper. The LP comes with a free Download code. As well as individual album tracks the digital versions include two continuous “album side” versions as the piece was intended to be heard.
