Simon is a well-known UK experimental sound artist with releases on labels such as Cronica Electronica, Flaming Pines, Line, Rural Colours, The Helen Scarsdale Agency to name a few, while Canned Fit aka Christine Schörkhuber, a Vienna based sound artist has appeared on digital various artists compilations. This is her first physical appearance. The sound artist Christine Schörkhuber works with a fragile yet powerful setup consisting of self-built electronic analogue interfaces, sonorous everyday commodities and her voice. The performance is trembling between subtle crunchy sounds, song fragments, noise-fields and penetrating drones.
Christine Schörkhuber and Simon Whetham met in early 2013 through mutual friend Luis Toto Alvaro where the three of them performed collaboratively in a darkened room in Quillota, Chile. It was there they realised that through very different means, they were producing similar and complementary results. Following the concert they discussed the possibility of collaboration, face-to-face, rather than file sharing. The opportunity arose while Simon was in residence at Villa Waldberta, Feldafing, Germany through February and March 2014. Christine visited for two weeks for the duo to share time and exchange ideas, which led to a number of intensive and extensive recording sessions during which the artists pushed each other to create a work that is uncharacteristic of their solo activities.
Named after a Hitchcock-esque nightmare in which he was set upon by a pair of hard-winged, marauding cuckoos, David A Jaycock’s second album is step forward from the pastoral motifs of his debut, incorporating an expansive country-folk sound alongside the indigenous qualities and general oddness that have made his name.
Extremely limited numbers available: For all intents and purposes, Grand Salvo is the work of singer-songwriter Paddy Mann. Grand Salvo’s debut album, 1642-1727, and its follow-up, River Road, earned him rave reviews and a solid following at home and beyond for his stark, sensitive and beautiful songs.
After a spell living in Europe, Paddy returned to Australia and began work on another album he’d dreamt up while away, A set of songs that acts as a children’s storybook, the album became cursed with too many recording problems and Paddy decided to shelve it. While that project will eventually see the light of day, its plagued nature ironically became the motivation for The Temporal Wheel.
