ILAND (cajid 007CD)
Released October 2006

"The stinging bites of cello act as vital punctuations for the concrete elements -the vigorous bowing and scraping resulting in jarring linkages between swelling oceans of Soddell's distended source materials." Lawrence English - The Wire


Track 03 (excerpt) ::: Anthea Caddy & Thembi Soddell ::: ILAND

ILAND is where the textural and dynamic capabilities of extended cello and sampler performance collide. Mapping spaces bordered by isolation, paranoia and dislocation, this collaboration between Australian sound artists Anthea Caddy and Thembi Soddell describes a provocative and tense sonic world. From the damp obscurity of condemned architecture to the laboratory conditions of anechoic and reverb chambers, Caddy extends the sonic capabilities of cello through a response to the distinct acoustics of the space she performs within. Combined with Soddell's unique and expressive treatment of sonic textures and her signature approach to narrative structure through dynamic extremity, ILAND moves through a dense core of physically and psychologically contrasting formations to become a singular act of intense and cathartic sonic expression.
