“It is simply acknowledging that the world is actively unknowable to us, in opposition to the way that digital computation attempts to render the world knowable. We can’t read water in the same way as we can read data, and this is a good thing.” James Bridle. Ways of Being : Animals, Plants, Machines : The Search for a Planetary Intelligence.

Hibernation Activities

Bana Haffar: intimaa’ (Touch)
https://banahaffarreleases.bandcamp.com/album/intimaa
Scandalously looked over, this great record shows what a constantly challenging and vigorous artist Bana is. She keeps us on our toes and is always one step ahead… marvellous!

Sam Dunscombe: Two Forests / Oceanic (Black Truffle)
https://samdunscombe.bandcamp.com/album/two-forests
A revelation. “This release is the result of several years’ research into the role played by music in psychedelic-assisted psychotherapeutic practice…” I’m in!

Ted Reichman: ‘Orgelwerke’ (Ash International)
https://theeternalchord.bandcamp.com/album/orgelwerke
Wonderful reworking of discarded vinyl. THE GREAT RECKONING is coming for this fossil fuel-based product, and here’s a fantastic way to work with what others have discarded.

William Fowler Collins: Alone Inside The Walls Of Night (The Tapeworm)
https://the-tapeworm.bandcamp.com/album/alone-inside-the-walls-of-night
Good artists know how to self-edit and show restraint. Here’s one of them.

Claire M Singer: Saor (Touch)
https://clairemsinger.bandcamp.com/album/saor
Each album Claire makes underlines what a unique road she is treading. Her vision is framed with emotive power in a way few others manage. Every home should have one.

Alka: On The Run (Mortality Tables)
One of those glorious moments which are gone as soon as they appear….HUNT IT DOWN!

CM Von Hausswolff & Chandra Shukla: Travelogue (Bali) (Touch)
Bloody hell! Was stunned when this came in and it still turns me around.

Philip Jeck & Chris Watson: Oxmardyke (Touch)
https://philipjeck.bandcamp.com/album/oxmardyke
The generosity of spirit of these two artists produced a gem, in the most difficult of circumstances. Although a bright shining light powered down, it continues to pulse through our universe of listening.

John Krausbauer & Patrick Shiroishi: High Life
https://patrickshiroishi.bandcamp.com/album/high-life
Get the physical if you can find it. A screaming drone of a record from a remarkable pairing, recorded in 2021.

Ulrich Krieger: Aphotic II — Abyssal (ROOM40)
https://room40.bandcamp.com/album/aphotic-ii-abyssal
“Down down, deeper and down.” Sub-pelagic glory from a world we have no right to do anything to but observe and learn.

Secret Garden

“From its own fetal curves, green fiddleheads produce ancient spiral formations. The fiddleheads teach me to unfurl my own lineage & experience patterns – examine them, be with them, and listen to their messages. The fiddleheads are gifted time-travelers. If I don’t learn the lesson now, the pattern will show up in my life like an unwelcome visitor. By meditating with the spiral in mind, I can focus my attention on re-encountering the old wounds differently and imagine a new possibility. The fiddleheads teach me the vitality of perspective shift. The fiddleheads teach me to respect the slowest micro-movement & own my way forward.” – Marie Varghese

Sound and Gestures

Hosted by Natasha Pirard, who also provided the photograph.

“Just as certain creatures are the last examples of a form of life which nature has abandoned, I wondered whether music were not the solo example of the form which might have served —had language, the forms of words the possibility of analysing ideas, never been inverted —for the communication of souls. Music is like a possibility which has never been developed, humanity having taken different paths, those of language, spoken and written.” Marcel Proust.
