Free Christmas download – Willkommen Patchwerk

Friday, December 21st, 2012


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
Marcus Hamblett
Eyes & No Eyes
Hamilton Yarns
Thomas Heather
Danny Green (Laish)
John Smith
Fiona Sally Miller
Nick Hemming (The Leisure Society)
This Is The Kit
Rachael Dadd & Ichi
Rozi Plain
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)
Mary Hampton
Alphabets Heaven
François Marry (François & the Atlas Mountains)

The new Alessi’s Ark album “Time Travel” is out today in America

Tuesday, September 27th, 2011

Alessi’s new album is out today in America. The album features contributions from lots of Willkommen musicians. My personal highlight is a track called The Fever which is an instrumental trio of Alessi on guitar, William Calderbank (Sons, Miserable Rich etc) on piano and Emma Gatrill (Sons, Mariners etc) on the harp.

You can stream the album on Alessi’s Facebook page, visit Bella Union US to buy hard copies or visit Amazon or iTunes to download it.
