New re-release on the Spirit of Gravity BandCamp label: Roots and Culture

The Spirit of Gravity presents another release from our capacious vaults. This is ‘Roots and Culture’, originally released in 2010 – a compilation featuring various projects of members of the Spirit of Gravity collective and their associates, including I’m Dr Buoyant, Noteherder & McCloud, minimal impact and Hot Roddy.

A recurring theme – hinted at in the title – is homage to influences and lodestars, who include Alvin Lucier, Raymond Scott, Anna Mendelssohn and the MC of BBC TV’s The Good Old Days.

Thursday 1st June at the Rossi Bar: f.Ampism / Yiskāh / Dale Frost

f.Ampism: Immersive improvised synth & sample gloop
Yiskāh: Drones & field recordings; generative & interactive natural environments
Dale Frost: Drums and Synthesiser; exploring rhythm through process

Paul Wilson has been playing around with sound for 20 years. As f.Ampism he has released albums on Ikuisuus, Lal Lal Lal, Chocolate Monk, Giant Tank and more. He is currently working on an album for Brighton-based Hive MInd. He contributed to the 2018 Kemialliset Ystavat LP “Siipe Empii” and is currently putting the finishing touches to a collaborative duo with Jan Anderzen (Kaloja) and a trio collaboration with Jani Hirvonen (Uton) and Johannes Schebler (Baldruin).
Also in 2018 he attended a 5 day immersive workshop/retreat in the French Pyrenees with ambient legend Laraaji. This included body and breath work as well as deep listening and sonic experimentation. He hosts a monthly radio show, “The Infinite Inward” on Resonance Extra, currently in its 5th year.

 Yiskāh is the performance alias of Jessica Beechey, a Cornish sound artist, performer, sound designer and live sound engineer based between London and Cornwall. A Falmouth University BA(Hons) Creative Music Technology graduate, she is currently in her final year of MMus Sonic Arts at Goldsmiths, University of London. Working primarily as a Sound Artist, she performs and produces works within the realm of drone music, using field recordings and interactive & generative means of creation to explore natural environments.

 Dale Frost is a drummer and electronic musician who performs solo using an acoustic drum kit connected to a sampler and loop pedal, allowing him to create loops and layer sounds in real-time. His previous work has explored networked, interconnected rhythms, as in his ‘Perm Octo Clavè Induction Set’ project.
Currently, Frost is exploring the use of audio sampling and resampling to generate polyrhythms in his solo drum kit performances. His music uses a blend of organic and synthetic sounds, drawing influences from minimalism, post-rock, IDM, and free jazz.

Hosted by our very own DJ Cheesemaster

Chris [Symmetrical Forces] creates live visuals for each performance using his own lo-fi footage, dusty VHS tapes and obscure videos from the internet to create futuristic images from the past overlayed with out-of-reach memories and vague fragments of lost visions.

The Rossi Bar is a small grade II building, and they are restricted with how they can improve access for anyone with mobility issues. The live music venue is located in the basement, which can only be accessed by a short spiral staircase. More accessibility information and images of the venue are in this document:
