about

On November 13 2009, Gwilly Edmondez, BloominÕ Caroline and Ludal Le Chacal performed as live vocalists and situational improvisors in the Sound of Aircraft Attacking Britain presentation The Velvet Lantern, a four-hour video/performance installation programmed as part of the Cardiff performance art festival Experimentica 09. The performance took place in Chapter Art CentreÕs roomy Stiwdio space; the logistical complications were such that SAABÕs Richard Bowers and Ian Watson spent pretty much the whole day setting up and eliminating problems arising. Outside the rain pounded the Welsh capital in the heavy and relentless way that is particular to South Wales and the South West UK; the trio would probably have spent the day drifting around Cardiff city centre, seeing sights and wasting energies on anodyne distractions. But with the flooding deluge outside, they were instead confined to the studio control room above the performance space where their habitual noise-making inevitably evolved into an actual recording session using the only means they had, the mono mic on the Boss BR-1 that Edmondez was travelling with.

The session that emerged relates with real intensity the stir-crazy cabin fever that infested their collectivity that afternoon and was subsequently sweetly packaged and art-worked by Ludal. The weird thing is that November 13 2009 remains the only time this exact trio have performed; this album leaves you begging for more, and Kakutopia hopes very much that somehow the trio can reconvene in the not too distant future to pick up where they done left off.
