Alchemical Figure

27th October 2015 - 31st October 2015

For an event where screens flicker with slow-movenent films of esoteric Dorset, patient fingers craft hymnals at the meeting-point of cracking seed-husks and sap-beneath-bark; the ocean’s roar and the electromagnetic thrum of cloudless, star-filled skies and British pastoral drone.
Through his work as Tex La Homa and in collaborations with Scottish sound artists Brian Lavelle (as Fougou) and Andrew Paine (as The Blue Tree), Shaw has refined an approach that is distinctive and powerful, sifting found sounds and field recordings with finely traced details and mounting swells of treated strings, guitar, synth and a broader uncatalogued sonic apparatus.
This has resulted in the perfection of an idiom which, though wholly Shaw’s own, unites the organic resonances found in Richard Skelton’s fellwalker’s symphonies with the fiery, silver-hued crop-circle afterburners of Flying Saucer Attack.
