Celebrating new cassette releases from Marlo Eggplant and dtub.
Marlo De Lara produces textural compositions which develop from microscopic tone landscapes into dense and expansive states of noise and drone. Her works aim to blur the definitions of (un)intentional sound and music. The many noises and tones of De Lara’s live performances are sourced from autoharps, contact mics, vocals and loops, amongst other tools.
Marlo Eggplant released Callosity on Fractal Meat in December 2016
Ingrid Plum is an artist working with Sound, Voice, Space and Video.
Plum uses her voice with extended technique, improvisation, field recordings and electronics, to create layered soundscapes, spoken word and songs. Having performed and exhibited installation sound art and visual art since 2002, she creates work that sits between sound art, improvisation, multi-media installation, neo-classical and contemporary Nordic folk music.
The intimacy Plum creates in her recordings and live performance has the honesty of a confessional with the sonic scope of the forests and open coastlines of her native Denmark, that inspire much of her music. With installations that create meditative, sensory stimulative environments and performing stripped back, minimal gigs, she entices you into her hushed world.
Jaxson Payne uses an electronic drum kit to trigger samples from a custom library of thousands of carefully chosen sounds, creating engaging live techno performances. Payne is a musician, composer and sound-artist currently living in Cardiff. A founding member of Koept (Cornish electronic art and sound organisation), his work has led to a variety of projects: from experimental electronic recordings as Personality Son, forward thinking techno releases using his Derehctub pseudonym and intricately constructed sound-collage works under his own name.
dtub released Midi-drum Compositions-1 on Fractal Meat in December 2016
