We were sorry to find out that Rowan Forestier-Walker, better known to us as Embla Quickbeam, sadly died last week. She’d been ill for a while and passed in the company of her husband in a cabin they’d been refurbishing down in Cornwall. She was one of life’s decent people an artist of singular vision and always a pleasure to have play.

When we moved to the Green Door Store she was the first artist to play, and the first artist we asked to play. Her sets were rather like her in the end, rather lovely, full of depths and just gone far too soon.  She will be missed by all of us who knew her.

Sound Artist Jez riley French has written this obituary for The Wire:

Our radio show this month starts with two Embla Quickbeam pieces, one from record and one live set from Splitting The Atom.
