Options March 9, 2012: Gwilly Edmondez: Mantra - for Radio Boredcast

GWILLY EDMONDEZ: MANTRA – FOR RADIO BOREDCAST

2 – MANTRA (Gwilly Edmondez – voice & acoustic bass guitar)

‘Mantra’ takes as its starting point the definition of mantra as an ‘energy-based sound,’ proposing, initially, that the riff in rock music can be defined as such. What transpires is an hour-long performance that selects a riff and repeats it over an extended period, using it to support a vocal that starts with a casual chanting of the ‘Om.’ The performance follows a developmental logic that is in keeping with the nature of Gwilly’s mode of production.

Gwilly Edmondez has been making improvised music, composed music, collage and noise, officially, since co-founding Radioactive Sparrow in Bridgend, South Wales in 1980. Since 2004, in civilian life he has taught at the School of Arts & Cultures at Newcastle University. He currently performs and records as a solo artist and in multiple/multiplying group outfits. New work can be followed at the following locations:
