"An arbitrary succession of more or less irritating sounds"

Blood & beer

After their often mesmerising Night Haunts Sukhdev Sandhu & Scanner recombine on the chewily poetic Sighs, Wonders for the Abrahamic The Calling (part of this year's Spitalfields Festival) - a long extract below, with a moving coda ("you don't know what I do...") by Paul Turp, Rector at St Leonard's Church, Shoreditch.

A rewarding pair of NH instrumentals - the throbbing, rattling Graffiti & ruminative, ebbing Rivers - below too...

"The invasion of the Visigoths. The onward march of the Griffin. The role of corporate capital in mangling the languages of ethics and intimacy that the church tries to speak. This experimental sound piece is a drift through the yearning spaces of the East End: its dreams and disappointments, its fierce refusals and affirmation. It is as if eavesdropping into a misty day and falling into a plaintive dream, where Sandhu's libretto resonates against the brittle dark textures and ambience of East London composed by Scanner."

Also from The Calling, video of Swirling Passages of Time - 'A Sufi Journey' by Sonia Mehta & Nasha Crew/Experience:
