Mary Lattimore :
Memories, scenes, and split-second impressions have long filled Lattimore’s musical universe. As one of today’s preeminent instrumental storytellers, she has “the uncanny ability to pluck a string in a way that will instantly make someone remember the taste of their fifth birthday cake,” writes Pitchfork’s Jemima Skala. Lattimore’s impulse to record life as it happens matches her drive to travel and perform, as profiled by Grayson Haver Currin for The New York Times: “Lattimore recognized that being in motion shook loose strands of inspiration, moods she wanted to express with melody. She needed, then, to remain on the go.” That sense of fluidity has also made her a prolific collaborator outside of solo work. 2020’s Silver Ladders, recorded with Slowdive’s Neil Halstead, opened the door for Lattimore to widen the vision of her primary project as well, and its proper follow-up is the natural next scale. “All of these people I asked to contribute have deeply affected and inspired my life.”
SG (Andrew Pekler) :
Andrew Pekler's work centres on re–contextualising found sounds and re-interpreting archival musical materials. Since 2002 he has released solo and collaborative musical works for labels includung Faitiche, Shelter Press, Kranky, Staubgold and Senufo Editions. Together with cultural anthropologist Kiwi Stefanie Menrath he developed Phantom Islands - A SonicAtlas, an interactive online map that charts the sounds and histories of a number of islands that were once found on nautical maps but have since disappeared. His latest album For Lovers Only / Rain Suite – under the pseudonym SG – is a collection of minimalist, sentimental solo electric guitar pieces. Pekler will perform versions of these composition live at arkaoda.
