UPCOMING Joan Hacker HAIR GUITAR
via Alrealon Musique
My song PHAIM appears on the January 2016 Wire Compilation curated by Alrealon Musique. This solo guitar piece was recorded by Martin Bisi at BC Studios in Gowanus, Brooklyn in August 2015.
CD-R + DVD-R
Numbered edition of 11 in homemade layout. Recorded at home in Brooklyn in 2013.
«The foundation of this set of songs is a feedback loop played at varying pitches. I also utilised rhythms which naturally arise out of breathing and vocalising, layering them at their own intervals to create cohesive + disjointed aural topographies. Another primary element of Heroine is the use of cassettes in the recording process and allowing, if not sometimes emphasising, their own incidental sounds and noise- as well as those present in the recording environment.»
«The DVD features a video compiled and edited by NXR using footage shot by Joan. The soundtrack is two songs, "Light Hole II," an ambient vocal meditation, and a minimal guitar improvisation in which Joan plays guitar using her hair.»
