There’s a melancholic tug to autumn, a season of transitions where we accept light and darkness’s coexistence. Arriving at the final instalment in the series, Shadowed Embrace brings us full circle, with five artists distilling in sound this sombre, yet gentle time of year. Whether it’s a joy tinted by dread, or cradling the softer edges of sadness, the tracks welcome the strange mystique that fall brings.
A tingling air of excitement and wonder greets us as we enter a season of magic. Seasonal Diary III: Curious Enchantment brings together eight artists to capture the sounds of summer, where long days brim with possibility. Every turn from dawn to dusk presents the allure of a new adventure; resplendent awe awaits.
As we enter into a new season of blossoming and rebirth, we embrace diversity in creating balance and harmony. It’s all echoed in Lush Abundance, the second edition of our Seasonal Diary series which examines the cycles of life and the changes in nature at different times of the year. Through the language of sound, we aim to explore the complex feelings and emotions that are part and parcel of these radical changes. Featuring seven different interpretations by artists from a wide range of backgrounds, the resulting narrative is multifaceted yet distinctly versatile.
Seasonal Diary I: Radical Tenderness is the first compilation in a new periodical series that explores life’s cyclicality and nature’s variability through different sonic moods. We invited six artists to craft the sonority of relatively opposing spectrums – cold and cozy – which paired together depicts the lush duality of the winter season. The result is a heartfelt narrative about the search and pursuit of solace in the midst of turbulent and uneasy times.
Tactile Interactions brings together textile artist Bec Kirby and sound artists Joda Foerster & Niklas Kramer for an exploration in tangibility and modularity across object and sound. The three artists were driven by a mutual intrigue as to how physicality transcends form, while form could be subtracted, manipulated, and synthesized into new manners all together.
Clay Bodies is a multidimensional project stretching artistic language, form, and workflow across digital and continental spheres. Baal & Mortimer, Cate Kennan, Cucina Povera, and Morita Vargas engaged in an intimate, collaborative process with Camila Apaez of Ila Ceramica. This resulted in four handmade, one-of-a-kind ceramic sculptures being conceptually soundtracked by five musical contributions recorded onto a limited-edition cassette.
Stemmingswisselingen means mood swings in Dutch. A limited-edition series of 8 handmade papier-mâché masks by Park Pardon inspired by the 8 moods we have in store.
As a nod to objects & sounds, we teamed up with Nosedrip, Haron, Vica Pacheco, Barbarelle, Suzanne Kraft, Soft Focus, Mapstation and Richard Greenan to give each of these characters a matching soundtrack.
