LADY MAISERY

Lady Maisery are an English folk vocal harmony trio composed of Hannah

James (vocals, piano accordion, clogs, foot percussion) Hazel Askew

(vocals, concertina, harp, bells) and Rowan Rheingans (vocals, fiddle,

banjo, bansitar).

Lady Maisery sing traditional and contemporary folk songs as well as

exploring the tradition of diddling or tune singing, which has

nearlydied out in England, but is still prevalent in Scandinavia and

other parts of Europe.

RAFAEL ANTON IRISSARI

Rafael Anton Irisarri is an American composer, multi-instrumentalist,

electronic music producer, interdisciplinary artist and curator.

Predominantly associated with ambient, drone, post-minimalist, and

modern classical music, Irisarri recorded output captures an essential

vision of floating tones, deep pulsing bass and textural electronics.

His use of ostinato phrases taps into minimalist ideals while

atmospheric layers of effects suggests a more cinematic quality in his

productions. In all, Irisarri compositions are deeply emotive and epic

to the point of being symphonic.

Z’ev

Z’EV (born Stefan Joel Weisser on February 8, 1951 in Los Angeles,

California) is an American poet, percussionist, and sound artist. After

studying various world music traditions at CalArts, he began creating

his own percussion sounds out of industrial materials for a variety of

record labels. He is regarded as a pioneer of industrial music.

In 1983, critic Roy Sablosky wrote: “Z’EV doesn’t just break the rules,

he changes them. Journalist Louis Morra wrote in 1983: “Z’EV is a

consummate example of contemporary performance art, as well as modern

composition and theater.” and, “Z’EV realizes many of modernist art’s

ultimate goals: primitivism, improvisation, multi-media/conjunction of

art forms, the artist as direct creator.

His work with text and sound has been influenced by Kabbalah, as well as

African, Afro-Caribbean and Indonesian music and culture. He has studied

Ewe (Ghana) music, Balinese gamelan, and Indian tala.

POLE

But neither hip-hop nor dub were the defining elements in Betke’s first

two musical phases. Betke has never been a reggae or hip-hop artist. His

music isn’t based in a scene or in private experience, but in musical

structures, which he decontextualizes in order to integrate them into

his own personal musical language. In Betke’s 2007 release “steingarten”

there are no more references holding the music together. Electronics,

loops, minimalism – all of that is there, of course, but now it’s all

operating in a space all its own. Betke’s work, created in a vacuum,

independent of musical trends and clearly defined reference systems, is

not predicated on anything or prefacing anything – it’s a timeless

artistic achievement.

TJONG POW

Tjong Pow is an improvisation project that wishes to re-examine our

human relation with the technology we use in music and the methods we

apply to it. How do we get to understand our technology? To what level

do we allow ourselves to know it? And what happens as we go further and

deeper into that relationship?

DEAN McPHEE

Solo electric guitarist Dean McPhee’s spacious, hypnotic and echo-laden

music brings together a broad range of influences including Medieval

Folk, Dub, Post Rock, Kosmische Musik, Desert Blues, Moroccan Trance and

Ambient/Drone, but his singular approach to the instrument is very much

his own. Having developed his unique style of playing over years of

experimentation and improvisation, his critically acclaimed releases on

the Blast First Petite, Folklore Tapes, World in Winter and Hood Faire

labels and mesmerising live performances have cemented his reputation as

being one of the most original and distinctive musicians in the current

crop of post-Fahey guitar soli. « On the Wire” presenter and legendary

champion of unusual and esoteric music Steve Barker recently described

Dean as being “definitely one of the leading contemporary guitar

stylists in the UK, and in the world” and his 2015 album « Fatima’s Hand »

has been widely praised by sources such as The Wire, Uncut, Record

Collector, Music OMH, DOA, Drowned in Sound, MOJO Magazine and ATTN:

Magazine.

RACKER&ORPHAN

Racker&Orphan is a duo consisting of two of the UK’s most enigmatic and

artful experimentalists, Sam McLoughlin (N Racker/Sam and the Plants)

and David Chatton-Barker aka David Orphan (Folklore Tapes). Using

handmade instruments and analogue projections, their live performances

are absorbing and unpredictable. Racker&Orphan’s 10″ album « Sounds of

Insects » was released earlier this year on the Hood Faire label and is a

direct homage to an old Scholastic/Folkways field recordings LP of the

same name by Albro T. Gaul and found Racker&Orphan using a mysterious

blend of specialised field recording and sympathetic reassembling to

create mysterious and absorbing insectile soundscapes. Sam and David

were recently seen supporting Richard Skelton at St John’s Church in

London, performing improvised music and live projections using organic

materials and microscopic film as part of a live performance of Rob St

John’s « Surface Tension » project. Earlier this year « Sounds of Insects »

received a great four star review from Record Collector and was

described by « We Need No Swords » blog as being « one of the most

diverting and interesting releases of the year”.

Thanks for reading.

I hope to hear from you as soon as possible.

All the best.
