New minimalist composition from Lawrence English composed and recorded over the month of July in 2011 - whilst nursing his newly arrived daughter between the hours of 11pm and 4am. Recorded entirely with an elka 30 organ and given a gentle toasting through LPE's analog mastering set up. The room around it is filled with a dusty ash; smoke in haze like proportions. Eyes are blood shot, sunken below the rim of a glass. The organ's speakers cough vibrations into the room, smoke plumes spinning and spiralling into dissipation. No one speaks though the room is crowded, there is nothing to say and no one cares to hear it. Is there ever a time for last drinks? At the Lonely Women's Club it's an undecided question. Lawrence English is composer, media artist and curator based in Australia. Working across an eclectic array of aesthetic investigations, English's work prompts questions of field, perception and memory. English utilises a variety of approaches including live performance and installation to create works that ponder subtle transformations of space and ask audiences to become aware of that which exists at the edge of perception. Over the past decade, English's sonic investigations have traversed a divergent path through which musical languages and environmental sources are granted equal focus. His work calls into question the established relationships of sound and structure. English's sound work is evocative and invites the listener to explore their own narratives and impressions informed by personal histories and experiences. Published widely on respected imprints including Touch, 12K and Winds Measure, English's work is sculpted and overwhelmingly intricate. The Wire noted his 'use of space and silence is remarkable', and U.S. sound journal Signal To Noise described the Ghost Towns work as 'extraordinarily gorgeous modern music concréte'. As a producer, English has completed numerous projects with artists including Tujiko Noriko (U, Blurred In My Mirror), Ben Frost (Theory Of Machines) and Tenniscoats (Totemo Aimasho, Temporacha). He has also completed commissioned compositions for acclaimed performance troupe Circa and other contemporary dance ensembles and has worked as a sound designer on video installations in collaboration with artists including Australian visualist Craig Walsh. His music has also been used in a number of films including a commission from Makino Takashi to create a composition for The Low Storm in 2009. Black vinyl. (label info)
