Penelope Trappes - Against The Clock (recording music in ten minutes)

Post by shadowplay » Thu Jun 20, 2019 1:49 am

Penelope Trappes’ solo work is not usually associated with speed. Her stunning releases on Optimo Music and Houndstooth bring to mind the other-worldly atmospherics of Scott Walker, Julee Cruise and This Mortal Coil; it is music that is much more about the journey that it is getting anywhere quickly.

Yet, despite the tight time limit, the antipodean vocalist, musician and soundscaper was able to create a haunting, improvised piece from guitar, synths and her own voice in just 10 minutes.

I adore Penelope's music as Penelope Trappes and as The Golden Filter and this is really enjoyable to watch and for me quite inspirational and made with accessible gear.

I like that old time rock 'n' roll, don't try to take me to a disco.

I love Mogwai's reworking of Burn On.

Thanks for sharing this. I'm now hooked on this series. What really struck me was how visual the music making process has become. I actively started looking for ones that didn't use computers, just to see what they did and how they did it. Learning a lot of cool things and about a lot of artists of whom I had never heard.
