Forest Swords
DJ-Kicks

Matthew “Forest Swords” Barnes gets The Invitation from the !K7 crowd, a sure measure of success. The selections for his mix prove eclectic and certainly more interested in portraying a range of great music than a seamless, segued mix experience. You’ve got Kara-Lis Coverdale, David Toop, Pantha Du Prince, Mira Calix, the London Bulgarian Choir performing the famous ‘Pilentse Pee’ and Vashti Bunyan’s splendid ‘Here Before’... you get the idea.

Forest Swords
Compassion

Much anticipated third album from acclaimed Merseyside- based producer Matthew Barnes aka Forest Swords. Barnes as many of us is in despair at the current uncertain world and has drawn inspiration from new ways of communication and has taken this into his music. The crux of the album is about blurring the lines between digital and organic, samples and unique playing and is sure to be  one of the most innovative works in 2017.

Forest Swords
Shrine (Original Dance Score)

This is the original score, written by Forest Swords, for a solo dance piece called Shrine performed by Owen Ridley-Demonick and choreographed by Carmel Koster. The audio piece itself begins with breathy shuffling and scrapes, imagine Holly Herndon doing a release on Tri-Angle and builds into distorted kicks and percussion with organic acoustic instrumentation and voices.
