An exploration of a slice of the spectrum by Kate Carr & Gail Priest.
The ice cold cool of blue, meets the regenerative power of green in a new vinyl LP by Kate Carr and Gail Priest.
Blue | Green presents a sonic interrogation of two colours packed full of allusions, metaphors, associations and even clichés.
Kate Carr’s blue charts a story of sailors and tides, inky nights and lonesome journeys. From bursts of radio static to the crackle of old records, receding tides and forgotten chants, blue moves from choppy seas to dark ponds and lost tales before closing with a delicate rain shower.
Through green, Gail Priest plumbs the sounds of her own backyard—the greenness of crickets, wild winds through leaves, raindrops on palm fronds and the dark dampness of the wormfarm. Emerging from this verdant landscape are half heard melodies and eerie voices, alluding to secret songs and forgotten spirits.
The final piece on both sides see Carr and Priest exploring the ambiguous terrain where green and blue converge. The artists swapped samples remixing and re-working them into closers which tip toe around the edges of perception to paint a greeny-blue landscape or perhaps one of bluey-green.
This release is a split release between Gail's Metal Bitch Recordings and Flaming Pines.
