Quiet Space — #194 — Megan Alice Clune

Megan Alice Clune is a musician, composer and artist based in Eora (Sydney). Her recent release, If You Do, became an album for solo voice and an ensemble of technologies. An album about contorting the body (voice) through time (rhythm, pulse), repetition and form. The work is nostalgic for past futures: wishing for the technological optimism of the late 70’s and early 80’s.

1/2/3/4 — #210 — Tell You Straight

Melbourne’s Ayleen O’Hanlon is back with a bold new single, Straight. She’s been a very active member of the alt-country/folk scene, released a cracking album in 2015 (Blend and Spill), but a double-dose of heartbreak, burnout and a pandemic forced her to stop and re-evaluate her direction. Her sound has a darker pop twist and is highly recommended. She’s just one of the strong women making music in this episode with brilliant new tracks from Mel Parsons, Piper Butcher and Caroline Marie Brooks.

Quiet Space — #183 — Another World

This episode looks at the Distant Bloom imprint, with a focus on the latest from Software Creator and AI Explorer, Dr Norah Lorway. Distant Bloom is her latest release, a delicate sound palette from radio samples, field recordings and code. These pieces are melancholy transmissions from an alternate spacetime continuum, coated in layers of hiss and static from interdimensional interference, full of strange emotion and yearning from another world just beyond our grasp, perhaps a kinder world than the one in which we find ourselves. As well, other excellent releases from Distant Bloom make up this episode of the Quiet Space.
