On Friday I was invited to be part of Lau Land, an amazing weekend of music curated by the trio Lau. They had programmed a diverse mix of electronic, world, folk and experimental music. I was on in the Lantern supporting Plaid. Jason and I bought our dual screen show to the Lantern. There’s a lovely write up of it from Cone Magazine here.
Here are some pics from the show. It was a great one!
Anyone that picked up merch – I will be bringing Vinyl out in the near future.

Turns out the world IS listening! To a panel this week in Bristol… – The World is Listening//
Last Sunday was International Women’s Day, and events were happening all over the world to celebrate! We celebrated in our own way, launching The World is Listening project in Bristol with a panel discussion titled “Where are all the women?” It was quite a broad subject to begin with, and impossible to devour in just one hour, but our aim with it was to get the conversation rolling and inspire ourselves to do more. We handed out some feedback forms and I’d like to share the results with you. We are going to pay very close attention to these results and are already planning workshops and talks for later in the year based on what YOU want! Perhaps this resonates with you and you want to find out more about how to host a talk in your town? Give us a shout email@example.com
Or perhaps you have more to say on the subject?
I wrote some words about my experience in Manchester, and it was published on the wonderful Blog, The World Is Listening.
Brighter Sounds are a cultural producer of creative music projects and events in Manchester who recently hosted a week-long residency for emerging female musicians. They put a call out to invite women to apply for positions in what was their fourth ‘Wall of Sounds Artistic Director Series’, this time lead by Beth Orton, after recognizing one in four applicants to their previous music residencies were women.
A good friend of mine saw the workshop advertised and thought I might be interested, once I read the press release I immediately felt compelled to apply. I feel strongly about women’s representation within music, and wondered if, being primarily a producer that works largely in soundscape ambient music, I would be appealing to the judges of the applications, to help achieve a mix of influences and musical backgrounds.
I found out I’d won a place about two weeks before the event, and wasn’t really sure what to expect to be honest! In that sense, nothing (and I suppose everything) could go wrong.
