Empty oil tankers. A haunted sponge cake factory. A housing estate on the edge of an industrial wasteland. Adam Stafford’s memories of his childhood home in Falkirk could easily be the premise of a coming-of-age horror movie, or a setting for a Celtic noir drama. Such cinematic perspective is perhaps not entirely surprising for an artist whose very first film picked up no fewer than seven major accolades, including two Oscar-qualifying festival awards and two Scottish BAFTA nominations.

To date Adam Stafford’s amassed an impressive body of work in both music and cinema. His numerous achievements include a Scottish Album of the Year-nominated solo album Imaginary Walls Collapse, video direction of The Twilight Sad’s ‘Seven Years of Letter’ and an experimental tape-collage Miniature Porcelain Horse Emporium.

Recorded in the Song, by Toad HQ, The Happiness Hotel, the latest addition to the Adam Stafford opus is Fire Behind the Curtain. The neoclassical L.P. is a testament of hope in his battle against depression. It was written over an 8-year period and inspired by Adam’s love of Meredith Monk, Michael Gordon and US Minimalism. Adam gives a preview of his latest avant-garde musical expedition: “Choirs yelp and screech, beatboxing courses through cosmic k-holes and guitars sound like saxophones trapped deep in the wasp-machine.”
