I love this EP from French sound experimental artist Felicia Atkinson.
The album’s centerpiece is the remarkable L’oeil, a poem/spell touching themes of decay, loss and worth. Key mantras: “i used to play more often, i used to be crucial”, “second track of the compilation”, “hanging by the shower curtain’s rod”.
First song of the EP is Against Archives. The title suggests its meta-theme that pores through nicely in the song’s meandering through the glitchy sub-bass and seemingly erroneous vocal snippets.
Shelter Press is publishing / curatorial platform based in the french Alpes founded in 2011
by publisher Bartolomé Sanson and artist Félicia Atkinson. It works as a nomadic artist-run organization building up dialogues between
contemporary art, poetry and experimental music through publications, pedagogical
experiences, and exhibitions. Check out their catalogue.
