Gordon Chapman-Fox was born in the 1970s and spent his childhood re-enacting Star Wars
to the sounds of Jean-Michel Jarre against the backdrop of the last gasp of the space-race.
Gordon has been making electronic music since 2003 under various names and labels.
Warrington-Runcorn New Town Development Plan is his latest project.

Warrington-Runcorn New Town Development Plan has seen three albums released to
critical and popular acclaim under the much respected Castles In Space imprint.

The first album, Interim Report, March 1979 was released in February 2021, and made the
Top 20 of Electronic Sound magazine’s albums of the year.

The second album, People & Industry, received equally good reviews and sold out quickly.

A fourth album is due in May 2023.

Supporting Warrington-Runcorn New Town Development Plan from Bristol is KAYLA
PAINTER: Having grown up a multi-instrumentalist, and playing in more conventional bands
at University, Painter’s personal journey led her deeper into electronic music production.
Her academic work focuses on the human relationship with sound, and this is reflected in
her compositions. She is a passionate explorer of the creative potential within field
recording; her compositions bristle with self-sourced timbres captured in an enduring spirit
of experimentation.
