Room40 has announced a new album from Lionel Marchetti and Cat Hope. It’s entitled The Last Days of Reality and features six tracks that Cat states “exist as live performances, but also as singular concrète works, when heard without the instruments.” The album is performed by the group Decibel, of which Cat Hope is a part of. You can listen to the title track above via the label’s Bandcamp page. A lengthy description of the album is also available there, as well as information for pre-ordering the album. The Last Days of Reality is due to be out on November 23rd.
Lionel Marchetti and Aki Onda have released a new 40-minute piece entitled "Le Dieu Nu". The two performed the track in 2010 during a residency-tour in the Netherlands that was curated by Frans de Waard. The piece also features vocal contributions from Perre Mottron and Yôko Higashi.
