New release on the Spirit of Gravity netlabel: Noteherder and I’m Dr Buoyant

The latest release from the Spirit of Gravity, Brighton’s long-shining lodestar of the musical leftfield, is ‘Day’ by Noteherder and I’m Dr Buoyant

Since releasing “The Floating Museum” in February 2021, Noteherder (Chris Parfitt) and I’m Dr Buoyant (Tony Rimbaud) have continued to exchange sound files between Porthcawl and Brighton, the best elements of which will be released across two full-length volumes, ‘Day’ and ‘Night’.

We kick off with Day; more expansive in tone than their previous release, I’m Dr Buoyant uses samples and effects based on Chris’s reed and concrète recordings to create sound beds on which
further improvisations easily sit. The unique musical chemistry, developed over many miles, is well worth worth a listen and a download at:

It may be confidently stated that ‘Night’ will follow ‘Day’, later this year

This month’s show was taken from music around the orbit of The Spirit of Gravity, friends of friends and beautiful strange music we found online, including Emily McWilliams, Richard Youngs and Phillipe Petit

Thursday 6th October at the Rossi Bar: I Am Fya / MelJoann / Gus Garside

I am Fya: From Manchester comes I am Fya, with her low End Textures, field recordings and sound system culture, steeped in Barbadian influences
MelJoann: Creepy avant-pop songs from Ireland’s MelJoann; disorientating AV and wellness cult recruitment are part of her weird world.
Gus Garside: 3 very different pieces for double bass and electronics from the improv and free jazz stalwart, on a solo outing away from Arc and other recent fertile collaborations

With apposite live visuals by Symmetrical Forces, overlaid with out-of-reach memories and vague fragments of lost visions.
