This piece was composed and performed in Hanoi in April 2014 at Madake Bar as part of the Resilience exhibition with conceptual artist Anthony Bannwart (http://www.anthonybannwart.com/). All sounds were processed from field recordings captured in and around Hanoi a few days before the performance.
My new album ‘Adrift’ will be released on 10/10/14 on Eilean Records.
Jordi Giraldez recently asked me to put together a mix for his SismografoSeries website. The only rule was to use work exclusively released under the Creative Commons license. Interesting restriction as I don’t follow the experimental netlabel scene as such. As I didn’t have much time to get myself really immersed into it, I took another approach and decide to use only a handful of labels and artists I’ve been following for quite some time and use a limited number of tracks (especially from Kenneth Kirschner and the label Yugen Art) that I cut-up and layered non-linearly to make something akin to a long piece of music instead of a proper ‘mix’. Enjoy!
A short film by Gianmarco Del Re about London-based artist-maker Nic Webb. Nic makes spoons and other objects out of green wood which he sources in his immediate surroundings. The film documents the transformation of wood into spoon and features fascinating insights into the ideas that underpin the process. The accompanying music was formed and composed between January and March 2014 and like the green wood featured in the film the raw material has followed a slow process of transformation until it could really work with the narrative of the project.
