I’m really happy to be playing at the second event in a new series of small-scale shows organised by the great Glasgow operatives CRY PARROT.
3pm, Saturday 22 February 2014
- John Chantler
- Luke Fowler
Glasgow – Secret West End Location
Capacity for each event is very limited but all attempts are made to make the shows as inclusive and welcoming as possible. Events are open to people of all ages, there are no guestlists and no costs either, meaning all ticket sales are passed directly to the artists. The venue location will be revealed to ticket holders 48 hours prior to the event. Elitism and snobbery discouraged, positive vibes thoroughly encouraged...
Two pieces recorded in 2013 in London. Artwork by grohs.
Edition of 150.
Originally from Australia but now a long-time London resident after a stint in Japan, Chantler works with electronic musical instruments, organ and percussion and has collaborated with Lawrence English, Tujiko Noriko, Tenniscoats, Maher Shalal Hash Baz and others. He also convenes the Organ Octet – a large ensemble where everyone plays a similar type of reed/chord organ. This cassette is the second volume in his ‘Automatic Music’ series and presents two pieces of electronic music recorded in 2013. The first volume in the series – for synthesiser/organ – was self-released as a limited edition LP in 2012.
Chantler’s last full length LP ‘The Luminous Ground’ was released in 2011 and included in The Wire magazine’s top 50 releases of that year.
