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)
Eyes & No Eyes
Danny Green (Laish)
Fiona Sally Miller
Nick Hemming (The Leisure Society)
This Is The Kit
Rachael Dadd & Ichi
Helen Whitaker (The Leisure Society)
Steve Aston Trio
Turbo & Silke (Martha Rose / OCDC)
Jacob Richardson (Sons of Noel and Adrian)
Chimes (Christian Hardy)
François Marry (François & the Atlas Mountains)
