    Free Christmas download – Willkommen Patchwerk

    Friday, December 21st, 2012

    patchwerk_heading

    In the past we’ve created several collaborative Willkommen projects for free download over the Christmas period.

    This year we asked as many Willkommen related artists as possible to simply contribute thirty seconds of sound. I stitched them together in the order in which they arrived to make a sonic patchwork quilt. The result is incredibly diverse and beautiful despite the random nature of its composition and form.

    Thank you to the following people for contributing:

    Alessi Laurent-Marke (Alessi’s Ark)
    Woodpecker Wooliams
    Said Speaks
    Landshapes
    Marcus Hamblett
    Soccer96
    Eyes & No Eyes
    Hamilton Yarns
    Thomas Heather
    Danny Green (Laish)
    Gravenhurst
    John Smith
    Fiona Sally Miller
    Nick Hemming (The Leisure Society)
    This Is The Kit
    Rachael Dadd & Ichi
    Rozi Plain
    Birdengine
    Helen Whitaker (The Leisure Society)
    Steve Aston Trio
    Rowan Coupland
    Turbo & Silke (Martha Rose / OCDC)
    Jacob Richardson (Sons of Noel and Adrian)
    Emma Gatrill
    Chimes (Christian Hardy)

    To celebrate her return to England having spent the past 8 months in Japan, Rachael Dadd will be playing at Kings Place on Friday 22nd June. The show will be split into two parts, with Rachael playing solo (including her new prepared piano songs), and also with a full band comprising of Emma Gatrill (of Sons of Noel and Adrian, The Mariner’s Children, and Laish), Tom Heather (Eyes & No Eyes), and experimental multi-instrumentalist ICHI. The music will be backed by animations and live drawing from Betsy Dadd. A very special night of songs old and new.
