Experimental Love SIGE Records Valentine show

Upcoming SIGE records show at the Chapel in Seattle WA "Experimental Love" Featuring Daniel Menche, Marshall R. Trammell+Aaron Turner, Faith Coloccia as Mára, NORDRA and William Fowler Collins

February 14, 2019 | 7:300 PM | $5 – $15 donation at the door 
“Experimental Love” – A collective exploration of drone, free improv, abstracted song and electroacoustic composition by SIGE Records artists Nordra, William Fowler Collins, Faith Coloccia, Daniel Menche, Marshall Trammell and Aaron Turner.

Nordra is the solo project of Zen Mother’s singer and guitarist Monika Khot, on label SIGE Records. Cinematic in nature, Nordra has utilized the trumpet to evoke an uncommon feeling of dread, along with sequenced beats, vocals, and guitar loops.

Originally from rural New England and now living in New Mexico, William Fowler Collins is an American composer, recording artist, and performer of dark minimalist music and drone music. Collins will perform material based on his new release, Field Music (SIGE). “Field Music isn’t a soundtrack for the bomb itself, but for the land that bore witness to its inception.” -THE WIRE

Faith Coloccia is an artist and composer/musician. She performs in Mamiffer, Mára and Barnett+Coloccia. She is the co-owner of SIGE records.

Daniel Menche is an experimental musician and multidisciplinary artist from Portland who has been performing and recording since 1989. He will be performing an electro-acoustic set of string drones reflecting the nature of his most ambient recordings on Sige Records — atmospheric and ominous drones that defy gravity.

Marshall Trammell is a percussionist & interdisciplinary cultural producer devoted to social issues. His unique training includes apprenticeships with improvising and folkloric masters, 20+ years as a creative music professional in the Bay Area, and MFA studies at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Integrated Electronic Arts. Currently, Marshall sits on the Executive Committee of the Merced County Arts Council in California’s San Joaquin Valley and spearheads an independent music festival.

Aaron Turner is a musician and artist known primarily for his participation in groups such as SUMAC, ISIS, Mamiffer and Old Man Gloom. His work has been informed by a lifetime involvement with metal/heavy music, often materializing in highly abstracted forms utilizing improvisation and longform composition. Turner is the founder of the Hydra Head Records label and co-founder of SIGE Records with partner Faith Coloccia. This event will mark his first collaboration with Marshall Trammell.

Black Spirituals video premiere!

Here is the new Black Spirituals(Zachary James Watkins and Marshall Trammell) video premiere for "Treatment" (Video by Faith Coloccia and Daniel Menche. 

Video is here: Echoes and Dust website

Marshall Trammell: "What Faith Coloccia, with the support of Daniel Menche, have done is create a double, intertextual fold. Strobed and iterative, they have remapped the narrative of fugitivity as simultaneous multi-dimensionality, adapted from Dr. Willie Anku; performed by Black Spirituals, as an origami of emancipated soul. This is the flesh and blood of Black Spirituals. This is the flesh and blood of the present wave of magic and unapologetic liberation."
