Quiet Space — #103 – How To Empty A Cup

How To Empty A Cup is inspired by the sounds of the Danny Scott Lane’s immediate surroundings: children playing outside of the window, a teachers strike, the bird’s nest above the street sign, crickets in the bush near the parking lot. On this his debut album, the talented photographer applies attention to detail using subtle instrumentation with wind and strings on a release recorded almost entirely in the rain. A wonderful listening experience.

1/2/3/4 — #115 — Vale Damian Lovelock

We pay tribute to a loveable rascal and incredibly influential artist in Damien Lovelock, who sadly has passed away at the age of 65.

Quiet Space — #101 – Lone Voyager, Lieven Martens Moana

A focus on this edition of one of my favourite artists, Lieven Martens Moanna (formally known as Dolphins Into The Future). He’s also got more pseudonyms than I’ve had hot dinners. His latest release for the Longform Editions imprint is a hypnotic layering of of choral voices – at certain points you hear 11 times the same part overlaid. Thus 11 x 18 singers = 198 singers! That new work is the centrepiece of a mix that shows through various recording techniques how he creates a conceptual form of exotic music that travels beyond the pure description. Amazing. Please discover all his works….

1/2/3/4 — #112 — A Chat with Ruth Hazleton

In this episode a chat with one of this country’s outstanding folklorists, Ruth Hazleton who after many years releasing music with others, embarks on her first solo project, Daisywheel. Like many artists these days, connecting directly to friends and fans alike via crowdfunding, it allows not only artistic freedom but a sense of community with those who participate. We’ll find out all about Daisywheel and hopefully you can be involved as well. We will also hear from other artists who have been successful in these ventures recently, Dana Gehrman and Danny Widdicombe and we’ll highlight a gorgeous track from Glen Hansard’s most recent release.

Quiet Space — #100 – CRXSSINGS (fundraiser for City Plaza)

Our focus is on a new compilation, CRXSSINGS.  The idea first emerged after Rutger Zuydervelt (Machinefabriek) and Gabriel Saloman (of Yellow Swans) exchanged mixes of each other’s work. Wanting to release the material in a way that could raise funds and awareness in support of migrants and refugees struggling for survival in Europe, Zuydervelt and Saloman invited dozens of electronic artists across Europe, Australia and North America to collaborate with an artist from another country, remixing one another’s work. As well, the latest from ‘supergroup’ Uwe Zahn, Porya Hatami & Darren McClure and an excerpt from Ahnnu’s Longform Editions release.

1/2/3/4 — #111 — Sad About The Times

Our focus on this edition is a brilliant compilation that asks you to imagine you are alone in a hot tub on a warm summer night back in the ’70s. Then a song you never heard before comes on the radio. You feel like it reaches into some place that has already been prepared in your mind. Then you never hear it again. Compiled by Mikey Young (Total Control / Eddy Suppression Ring) and Keith Abrahamsson (Founder / Head of A&R at Anthology Recordings), Sad About the Times is a set of North American 70s jammers. With a hint of (at times) West Coast jangle, these tracks traverse the border between the power pop of the times and a late-night coke jam.
