Monty Adkins | Suspended Edges
Monty Adkins is a composer whose music is characterised by slow shifting organic instrumental and concrete soundscapes. His first album ‘five panels’ released in April 2009 on signature/radio France featuring Adkins playing e-guitar and organ and Pierre Alexander Tremblay on bass. The album has also been nominated in the ‘album of the year’ category at the 2010 Qwartz awards, Paris. His recent work has focussed on collaboration. fragile.flicker.fragment also nominated for the 2012 Quartz award in the best album category and Four Shibusa – which resulted in a major exhibition at the Daiwa Anglo-Japanese foundation in London.
Memory Drawings | The Nearest Exit
Memory Drawings is the beguiling project of Minneapolis raised, Morocco-based hammered dulcimer player Joel Hanson, erstwhile Hood guitarist/multi-instrumentalist and sometime Declining Winter main-man Richard Adams, Brave Timbers violinist Sarah Kemp, Chris Cole of Movietone/Manyfingers (drums and cello) and Gareth S Brown of Hood (piano).
They produce music that maps the contours between brooding melancholy and redemptive calm that simultaneously suggests both classical minimalism and hearth-side folk. They blend their unique instrumentation into dazzling pieces that have been compared to Angelo Badalamenti’s compositions for ‘The Straight Story’ soundtrack, Laraaji’s early ‘80s use of the hammered dulcimer, the peaceful qualities of neo-classicalists such as Rachel’s and 4AD duo Dead Can Dance and This Mortal Coil.
They have released three albums ‘Music For Another Loss’ (2011), ‘There Is No Perfect Place’ (2014) and ‘The Nearest Exit’ (2017).
The Hole Punch Generation
The Hole Punch Generation have been together for eight years having formed in Boston, USA. Their music is defined by it's intensity and beauty and has been compared to bands such as Radiohead, M83, Arcade Fire & Sigur Ros. Each track soars and glides across manipulated electronics, shoegaze guitar riffs and the unique outpouring of Balthrop’s unique falsetto vocals. Throughout, the pure emotional rawness of the music shines through.
He Can Jog / Erik Schoster
He Can Jog is computer musician Erik Schoster and friends from Milwaukee Wisconsin. As He Can Jog he has released three full length records and a smattering of EPs, remixes, and sundry recordings on a number of small labels including Nomadic Kids Republic, Listening Party, Audiobulb Records and The Leaf Label. XLR8R calls it music to "please both laptop scientists and kids wanting something pretty to listen to while driving a car."
Calika is the solo recording alias of Simon Kealoha. His main focus within music is to explore the territory inhabited by electronic and acoustic sounds as they overlap and merge. This has led to 4 albums and 2 E.P’s since 2005 with a new album coming in early 2014 on Abandon Building Records.
Another new project is also planned for 2014 inspired by Simon’s constant running excursions through the South Downs National Park. It will be a single piece chronicling a run along the full distance of the South Downs Way in a single 24 hour period. It will record not only the sensory aspects of the journey but also the emotional and physical aspects of it and how the 2 relate to each other and the connections create.
Isnaj Dui is Katie English, based in North London, UK. Her work in the past has graced labels such as Home Normal, Smallfish, Rural Colours and her own imprint FBox Records.
With a history of recording and musical study that spans back to 1995, Katie’s current sound is characterised by her use of flute, particularly the bass flute. This is generally a rarely used instrument but is used frequently throughout her work as a defining feature. Add to this a few home-made instruments and electronics and you have the very distinctive sound of Isnaj Dui, a project that has been active since 2004. Katie has performed live alongside the likes of Library Tapes, Nils Frahm, and Simon Scott in venues such as The Foundry, National Portrait Gallery and The Union Chapel.
Autistici is Sheffield, UK based composer/sound designer David Newman. He has released his work through Home Normal, 12k and Kesh, as well as his own label Audiobulb.
His sound is characterised by the attention he pays to tiny detail, right from capturing the sound, carefully developing it and onto the stage where he sets them all together to create a new sound context from several disparate sources.
Sanandaj, Iran is home to experimental sound artist Porya Hatami. His ambient music gleams in its environment, natural sound abiding in its natural state – the very essence, the very source, of music.
Hatami’s music is anything but shallow. It is a careful whisper, carried on the breeze as a subtle swoosh of sound. The attention to detail really brings the music to life; it’s accuracy is essential to the music’s health.
Causeyoufair has composed an album of breath-taking beauty, delicacy and grace. His focus on space, reverberation tales and the emotional resonance that occurs between and across each musical notation is exquisite.
The music encourages the listener to become immersed accessing dreams, hidden memories and nostalgia. The quality of this work surely sits right up there alongside William Basinski and Stars of The Lid.
Xumla is the artistry of Ilya Goryachev, who lives in Yaroslavl, Russia. Marked by gentle, almost fragile melodies, broken rhythmic patterns, minimalistic arrangements and characteristic textured layering of musical themes.
Xumla gravitates to the meditation in search of meanings and to the minimalism as a mode of expression. Each work of Xumla is an element of live musical canvas, micro fibres which grow into each other.
Jimmy Behan (b.Carlow 1972) is an Irish musician/composer working with acoustic and electronic sounds, computer processing and field recordings.
He has performed at the Mor festival 2004, The Big Chill festival (UK) in 2002 and 2005, the D.E.A.F. festival 2007, The Electric Picnic festival 2008, Netaudio Festival Berlin 2009 with international acts including Murcof, Four Tet, Lali Puna, Fennesz and Caribou.
