Benoît Pioulard (USA/Kranky)

Listening Matter’ is the sixth Kranky album by Thomas Meluch under his musical alias Benoît Pioulard, following the 2006 debut full-length ‘Précis’, ‘Temper’ (2008), ‘Lasted’ (2010), 2013’s ‘Hymnal’ and ‘Sonnet’ (2015). The American sound sculptor – in a similar fashion to his label-mates Loscil, Grouper and Pan American – has amassed a rich body of empowering work, seamlessly creating some of the most affecting and captivating ambient-based compositions of the past decade.

In addition to Meluch’s universally praised solo work, collaborative projects include Perils-duo with Kyle Bobby Dunn (whose debut LP was issued by Desire Path Recordings) and Orcas- alongside The Sight Below’s Rafael Anton Irisarri released on Morr Music.

The Seattle-based composer and songwriter has continually forged utterly captivating folk-infused-ambient song cycles that are rooted in the examination of the self, of questioning of the universe and reconciling the two.

Praise for ‘The Benoit Pioulard Listening Matter’:

“Utterly perfect warmhearted lo-fi pop.”

Norman Records

“8/10 — A baker’s dozen of future-past pop songs etched onto water-warped tape… Euphoric.”
PopMatters

“Imbued with a sense of how fleeting life can be… Meluch’s words are sharp as ever,
evoking worlds of meaning in quick turns of phrase.”

WRY MYRRH (IRE)

WRY MYRRH is a recently formed duo comprising composer/GASH Collective organiser Ellen King [ELLLL], and composer/ Crevice member Irene Buckley, WRY MYRRH offers a sparse take on improv electronics, with sinister, brooding drone and noise inflections. As exploratory as it is unsettling, WRY MYRRH’s minimalist improv proves a wholly unique listening experience, heightened to wondrous effect when immersed in a live situation.
