Listening: FAKE CREEK, Kate Carr
New single from GAIKA, who was a lovely guy when I met him.
The new edition of MONUMENT podcast is an immense set by Yukari Okamura, drifting from urbanscape ambient into a rising sequence of propulsion that is giving me life. The sort of collection of sounds that reminds me of listening to Mary Ann Hobbs on XFM at the weekends, way back when. I remember one night I was stuck on the pacing of a crucial sequence in GUN MACHINE – just couldn’t get the rhythm right — and Mary Ann played “Bolts” by Northern Structures. It was precisely the rhythm I was looking for. So that book got finished because of Mary Ann.
I got delivered the wrong coffee so today has started on a dissonant note. Onwards.
