A trip through an electric desert, Dry Lights by Xavier Chassaing unfolds in an imagined environ- ment of cacti and canyons, moving from hidden caves to lonely cliffs along pulsating rivers of light.
This experimental film lies somewhere between a site-specific installation and a performance, where choreographed lights meet organic landscapes. Like an imaginary city flickering in the dark, the lights beacon fragments of vague memories – faded moments, experiences, and topographies. A world in an erratic state of flux that seems to evade any grasp of clear control plays host to constantly alternating physical and mental landscapes. Moving without a destination in the dead hours of night, mesmerising, intermittent apparitions illuminate their surroundings, allowing personal narratives to breed.

Olivier Messiaen’s Quartet for the End of Time premiered on 15 January 1941 in the prisoner-of-war camp where the composer was interned during World War Two.
To celebrate the 75th anniversary Sinfini Music commissioned Simon Russell to create an animation around it. Working with Prof. Marcus du Sautoy he used the piece to explore Messiaen’s complex relationship to mathematics, music and religious belief.

‘I tried to keep as close to improv as much as I could with recording and mixing all tracks done in one take. Over the years I believe that improv is the purest form of music and creation close to the oneness of the universe, any mistakes or error makes the music human. The simplicity of this music is a mantra I bring forth from my inner self to the universe’ – Gary Bromley.

|➲ Shelf Nunny “Wishful Thinking” ★ Label: Hush Hush Records ★ Released 22 January 2016 ★|
Shelf Nunny is the alias of current Seattle-based electronic musician Christian Gunning.
‘Wishful Thinking‘ marks his debut for Hush Hush, the Seattle-based label specializing in cinematic, wistful, emotional electronic music. A heavy melancholy persists over the EP’s four tracks, the sonic result of the dissolution of a wedding engagement that ultimately inspired the release’s emotional tone. While there’s a sad undercurrent that runs throughout the set, each track contains a moment of bright optimism, whether it’s a burst of double-time dancefloor-baiting rhythms or a particularly cheery melody that arises to the forefront.
Perfect for contemplative headphone listening sessions, as the soundtrack to scenic late-night drives, or unpredictable intimate romantic encounters, Shelf Nunny’s biggest statement to date announces the arrival of a new talent into the fertile Pacific Northwest music scene.
