Irisiri, New York musician and producer Eartheater’s third long player, was one of the best avant-garde albums of 2018. Full of interesting and challenging instrumentation, sonic assaults and arrangements, it’s a beguiling work well worth your time. The collaboration with Moor Mother on that album, called ‘MMXXX’, is up there with some of the best tracks of last year, and those who don’t like it need to give their head a wobble.

An artistic commission by the Outlands Network has led to UK duo Eartheater joining forces with Semiconductor for a series of immersive multi-media shows which are bound to fry all of the senses. The Fracture Patterns performances will incorporate the audience into the final show through a series of workshops with Alexandra Drewchin (Eartheater), where vocal ranges will be tested to the limit and then used later in Eartheater’s live accompaniment of Semiconductor’s film Black Rain.

A tantalisingly short video preview of what to expect from the shows can be watched here:

A more in-depth podcast by the producers offers a fascinating insight into the thinking behind this collaboration and can be listened to here:
