SALTINGS & Sophie Jackson

SALTINGS is a pastoral-horror-soundscape project, founded by Irish-born composer Andrew Cooke. Working by himself or collaborating with others, Andrew draws on the unsettling literary influences of authors like M.R. James and W.G. Sebald to tentatively create audio-worlds of controlled darkness; hushed plateaux of eerie tranquility and black horizons full of whispering, half-dreamed creatures... which are also liable to veer into cascading noise and unrepentant drone. Andrew uses of a combination of live instruments, loops, pedals and processing, and has two solo albums under his belt with more to come in 2018.

For this performance Andrew is joined by cellist Sophie Jackson.



Seth Cooke & Dominic Lash

Dominic Lash replaces the contrabass with rarely played electronics whilst Seth Cooke works with cymbals and microphones. Moving from process-based improvisation to process-based composition, they develop long-drawn textures, spreading and assembling in a natural way into a common sound system. Egregore? Solve it yourself!
