Field recordings and found sound are used to illustrate and re-envision the childhood the two anonymous producers spent growing up together. It is an album of fast moving passages, stop-start rhythms, and captured, instinctive inspiration. Through the playful musical passages and the fast-paced story-telling, the record embarks the listener upon a hidden and unique journey.

Together J.S. Foley and visual artist Timo Kuilder are seeking to create an invisible yet tangible conceptual bond between two artistic mediums, looking to expose and explore how the creative process can take shape, how concepts can be derivatives of one another, and how shared themes can bind art together to form single, cohesive statements.

During the creation process, J.S. Foley took inspiration from the German capital Berlin. Timo Kuilder’s illustrations are also energized by the dynamic and lively streets of his residence, Amsterdam. Taking structural suggestions from broken furniture discarded on the side of the canals and scattered light passing through hidden windows in colourful alley ways, Timo’s works digs into the atmosphere of his surroundings, chaotic but conscientiously controlled.

J.S. Foley - “This Isn’t a Real City” will also be released on a limited vinyl edition featuring 4 Fine Art Prints by Timo Kuilder, from a series he illustrated as part of the collaboration between himself and J.S. Foley.
