“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
