Hybernation > Fragile Times

Contribution of Hybernation track 'Fragile Times' written in 2012 but unreleased until 2020. Made from three samples: a Mogwai Guitar twang, Björk rolling her R's and the last 10 seconds of Elbow's first album.

ISOLATION AND REJECTION is a multi-volume compilation of rejected sounds, in support of Wigan-based charity The Brick. 

From small ideas and a little hope come rejection, loss and disappointment. But we won’t let you down – you are safe here. 

ISOLATION AND REJECTION was born out of thinking about what happened to all the tracks that didn’t make it onto those fancy compilations, and is now turning into an ongoing project to collect, collate and promote rejected sounds. This is not an isolation project – it’s a rejection project. 

All income raised will go to The Brick in Wigan – a fantastic charity on the front line of supporting those most in need, seeking to address the inequalities across our country exacerbated by COVID-19, but there all along.

Aural Aggravation - 'Hybernation’s nine-minute ‘Fragile Times’ is a perfect summary of everything: so fragile and soft as to be barely-present, it’s a mist-like ambient piece that’s impossible to place your hands on it, much less pin it down, and that wisp-like intangibility, that vague ephemerality is the essence of the collective mind right now.'
