William Basinski + Lawrence English
Selva Oscura

William Basinski and Lawrence English are friends (one based in LA, the other somewhere in Australia) whose paths have crossed numerous times over the past 5 or 6 years, sometimes by chance and other times more deliberately. In those moments they began to make the embryonic basis of Selva Oscura. Within its grooves are two extended pieces of music representing constantly shifting and unspooling states of being. A gradual, eternal reveal, of coming into contact with the 'strange familiar'. Choose from Indies-only opaque grey vinyl, or regular black LP. On Temporary Residence.

Alessandro Cortini & Lawrence English
Immediate Horizon

Lawrence English (who is good at ambient music) and Alessandro Cortini (who is good at being in Nine Inch Nails) join forces to create Immediate Horizon an album that manages to match English's subtlety, with some of the bombast Cortini is known for. They do so by focussing on harmony and texture, their differences emphasising each other.

Lawrence English
Cruel Optimism

Room40 bossman Lawrence English shows us why he is where he is with an excellent record of dense electronics. Cruel Optimism has the elemental drones that English is so good at, but also contributions from amazing guest musicians like Mats Gustafsson, Werner Dafeldecker and Tony Buck of The Necks. Quite a set of sounds.

Lawrence English
Approaching Nothing

In an gesture sure to send shockwaves around the electroacoustic / field recording community, Room40 man Lawrence English has returned to the scene of Luc Ferrari’s gorgeous Presque Rien No. 1 (a Yugoslavian / Croatian town) to record it again. Is Approaching Nothing therefore a tribute album? Maybe so, but it is just as great for deep listening as Ferrari’s piece. Out on Baskaru.

Viento

The story of how Viento was made by Lawrence English isn't your normal, three-days-in-the-studio-listening-to-The-Beatles-and-eating-crisps kinda story. On a trip visiting Antarctica with the Argentine Antarctic Division, the group make a pit-stop at Rio Gallegos which escalates into staying in the Patagonian capital for a few days. What to do but go around recording the diverse sounds caused by the wind on various objects - signs, abandoned buildings, trees and the like. Yet more wind sound was recorded at the Argentine bases in Antarctica during blizzards and temperatures of -40 degrees. It is from these recordings that Viento is created. I think even being in the studio with Phil Spector sounds more appealing.   The LP is cut to metal and then pressed on a whopping 200 gram LP for the clearest sound. It’s in a letter pressed sleeve with visuals complementing the harsh, austere sound of the record. Limited to 400 copies.  

Akio Suzuki + Lawrence English
Boombana Echoes

Sound art from one of japan’s most revered creators Akio Suzuki and Australian musician and composer Lawrence English. Eerie sounds punctuate a sparse soundscape, misheard voices, recorded in the place where the mechanical meets the organic, where electronic meets nature. CD on Winds Measure Recordings. Hand-numbered edition of 300 with art prints.

Lawrence English
Wilderness Of Mirrors

Wilderness of Mirrors is the new album from Lawrence English. It is two years in the making and the first album created since the release of his 2011 ode to J.A Baker’s novel, The Peregrine. It is English’s most tectonic auditory offering to date, an unrelenting passage of colliding waves of harmony and dynamic live instrumentation.

Francisco López + Lawrence English
HB

Kind of like a mixtape exchange but between two drone braniacs, HB sees musique concrete getting swapped like an episode of some reality TV show where two things or people trade places and Nothing Is The Same. Lawrence English and Francisco López both captured field recordings for one another and then exchange them for a new excavation. The result are compositions made to recontextualise natural sound in a new subjective setting.
