The New Lepers Ensemble is a soundscape culture project based in Adelaide, Australia and Japan. Field recordings are used and changed to create new combinations of ideas and environments.
Unlike many studio recordings in which silent surroundings are essential, the New Lepers Ensemble uses incidental noises captured by field recorder and the 'noise character' of recordings to make music. Along with this, a collection of instruments also contribute to the structure of the songs.
The first self titled EP was released under Adelaide based independent label Wholesale Meat Music. A second release is due soon titled "心理楽" (Shinrigaku) which will be under the wing of Tokyo based label Color-music.
