Mára (Faith Coloccia) "Here Behold Your Own" Pre-Order

Mára "Here Behold Your Own"

Side A: A New Young Birth 
Side B: Sangre de Cristo 

Available for pre-order HERE.

Preview a track HERE.

Mára is the solo project of Faith Coloccia, the hermetic composer, songwriter, and vocalist who has a central figure in numerous projects including Mamiffer and her ongoing collaborations with Alex Barnett. Her arrangements for piano, organ, electronics, guitar, and voice often take the form of deconstructed plainsongs, as elegant variations of a melody that smolder and dissolve into heavy-lidded assemblages of shadow, fog, and echo. As Mára, she continues with her signature aesthetics, while laying bare the emotional core of her being. 

Here Behold Your Own follows the very limited Surfacing cassette from 2015. The album began to take shape shortly upon the conception of her son and evolved to encompass her becoming a mother in conjunction with the re-engineering of her creative processes. Coloccia reflects upon the album’s origins, stating “ A lot of the material that I used to make this record felt like the last glimpses of ‘me’ before I became another me. Almost as soon as I conceived I felt the old me slipping away, and so these recordings and photographs were like the last time spent with myself before I changed.” 

Mára’s melodies draw from the lullabies that Coloccia would sing to her son. Dating back many years, she has employed the...  more

Daniel Menche follows up his triple CD opus Sleeper with the razor drone constructs of Melting Gravity. Hailing from Portland, Oregon, Menche is an iconic musician with three decades working with intense noise, immersive ambience, and turbulent field recordings. With Melting Gravity, Menche continues to carve his spot as a figurehead in the experimental community.

The title of Melting Gravity refers to an allegory on the human pursuit of transcendence with all of its connotations to weightlessness, ascension, flight, out-of-body experiences, and just getting high. Gravity, on the other hand, becomes that which negates and nullifies those transcendent pursuits. In the context of this particular allegory, gravity is the devil. Music, long a vehicle aimed towards transcendent ideals, becomes the weapon to defeat gravity, to defeat the devil. Daniel Menche wields the weapon of music in composing the mercurial grandeur that is Melting Gravity. 

Implementing an elegant arc of acceleration and dissolve, Menche presents a slow-motion tumble of drones from his signature manipulation of FM synthesis, oscillators, and sustained tones from various stringed instruments. The tangles and tendrils of these extended frequencies are bright and liquid, rich...  more

Marshall Trammell

April 20th at Southern Exposure SF CA
Info: https://www.facebook.com/events/331718994147118/

Join us on Saturday, April 20, 4:00-7:00PM for a special performance and discussion. Mutual Aid Project – Marshall Trammell (percussion), Tracy Hui (banjo and electronics), Nick Obando (alto saxophone and electronics) – will be joined by solidarity economists, restorative justice and labor activists, and the general public to listen, translate and broaden practical applications of What Does A Harm Free Zone Sound Like? Part II in everyday practices.

This performance will be a continuation of What Does a Harm Free Zone Sound Like? Part I, but can be equally enjoyed even if you can't make it to the first event.

Performing Political Education: Fighting Formations are a series from the “Status Quo Is My Enemy” tour by Improvised Music and Social Practice artist Marshall Trammell, of Antidisciplinarity.net, (formerly Music Research Strategies). Inspired by the historical process of building Harm Free Zones ( sites of Transformative Justice), incarcerated former BPP/BLA Russell “Maroon” Shoatz’ ‘zine “Black Fighting Formations: Their Strengths, Weaknesses and Potentials,” and the tactical media of the Underground Railroad (UGRR), the tour serves to reinserts solidarity technologies of the UGRR and explore the labor-value of i/Improvisation as an everyday life, organizing tool in today's political landscape.
