LAIR / Nigh/T\mare / The Summoning

September 6, 2021 § Leave a comment

Very happy to share a track from the awesome, soon to be released, album ‘Katharsis’ by Nigh/T\mare.

I collaborated with him for the creation of ‘The Summoning’ which was premiered by Lost In Ether and is currently streaming on their Soundcloud

The Summoning was also chosen by Torn Relics to remix and was premiered by Zenevloed and is currently streaming on their Soundcloud

It will be released on vinyl and digital soon on Thrènes Records

“From the depths of an ancient dark underworld, Nigh/T\mare has conjured a powerful offering of burning emotions that light the fires of one’s demons and invite the beginning of an epic journey through the unknown. Via Thrènes Records from Switzerland, this offering is on point with their consistent releasing of top quality industrial/experimental techno. Entitled ‘Katharsis’, this artistically crafted set of tracks in the form a debut album twists and turns its way over tribal rhythms with dynamic feels and beating drums that break down anything standing in the way. A powerful offering from the depths of the soul. “

Out Today / LAIR / I Hurt So I Cry EP

June 29, 2021 § Leave a comment

My newest EP is out today on Eotrax

Know the dark and light are one
There is no denying pain

Look at the unseen
Listen to the unheard
Love the life undone

We hurt so we cry, so hope may spring

LAIR returns to Eotrax with a new 4-track EP.

Following her 2017 self-titled debut EP, releases on Urban Legend and Rhod Records as well as collaborative projects in the visual arts and dance she returns to Eotrax to release I Hurt So I Cry this summer. 

Created using elements of sound healing and sacred sound I Hurt So I Cry can be engaged with from a purely musical perspective or listeners can take advantage of its sound healing qualities and use this EP as an active sound bath- active in that the listener intentionally uses the music to support them in going within and releasing, resting and restoring their body, nervous system and heart.

As with all LAIR’s work, the music is composed using only her voice with one exception, a sampled cello in the EPs first track Foreshadow. This brooding opener inhabits the dark ambient world we’ve come to expect of her music but as the EP unfolds ethereal vocal lines mix with her darker sound and a new, lighter sound world is revealed. 

In the artist’s words:

“A shadow falls across our lives, we hurt so we cry, the feeling starts to shift and from that shift hope can spring.”

Both intimate and expansive, the tracks create a feeling of existing outside time. LAIR’s profound connection to nature can be felt through all the tracks – at times in a deep cavern, at times moving through an elvish forest and at times in an Otherworld.

Released on June 29th on red cassette & digital with artwork and design by Goldmoth Media. Mastered by Dominic at Declared Sound.

LAIR / ‘The Gloaming’ / Always Night

March 15, 2021 § Leave a comment

I’m very happy to have a track on the ‘Always Night’ compilation which is beautifully curated by the artist known as Eastern Fear Ritual on his Adaptive Sonic label

All the tracks are influenced by and include bat sounds, with funds from the release going to support Bat Conservation Trust.

“Adaptive Sonic has assembled international talent to join forces with the Bat Conservation Trust for a fundraising effort dedicated to the preservation of our nocturnal friends.

Bats are a vital part of our native wildlife, accounting for almost a third of all mammal species in the UK and occupy a wide range of habitats, such as wetlands, woodlands, farmland, as well as urban areas. They can tell us a lot about the state of the environment, as they are top predators of common nocturnal insects and are sensitive to changes in land use practices. The pressures they face – such as landscape change, agricultural intensification, development, and habitat fragmentation are also relevant to many other wildlife species, making them excellent indicators for the wider health of global wildlife.”

Loads of awesome tracks on this, my current favourite being the compilation’s opener from Hauntist

Laura LAIR / Adam Perry / Collaboration Series / 5

May 14, 2020 § Leave a comment

The fifth piece in my series of Full Moon collaborations for 2020 with the wonderful artist and human Adam Perry

My contribution to our collab this month is called “What will you choose?”

Inspired by the current cycle we are in, it feels that we’ve all been here before and will be again depending on how we choose to move forward…

Our collective is made up of each individual choosing how they are going to behave in the world. This month, I feel it is vital for us all to ask within, what will you choose?!

Here is my May collaboration with @adamperryart honouring today's Full Moon 🌕 The name for this moon (there are many) that most resonates for me is the Milk Moon. It is- in the natural way of living- the time when the milk of the sheep, cows, goats etc comes in. It symbolises fertility and as the 4 Celtic festivals resonate so deeply for me, it makes sense that the names that align with the symbology of those festivals also resonate. Bealtaine is all about fertility, the return of the sun to the earth… the life-giving milk returning to the mother's breast. Being that we're talking about milk and mothering, the name Milk Moon also really puts the focus on the feminine and the life support to be found there. 🌕 Adam has made a video about his (rather epic!💫) full reading for this month, link in his bio. The message I received from the reading is the name of my track accompanying Adam's incredible artwork: "What will you choose?" 🌕 We are at a time of change- there have been many cycles like it before and there are many more like it to come… 🌕 Life does not just happen to us. Through this and every other moment of change, we get to choose our response. That is not to say the choice is easy, it's just to state there IS choice. 🌕 Be aware of where you are choosing to put your focus- be discerning in those choices. If you are feeling unhappy with the choices you've made in the past, choose differently in the now. That's the beauty of choice- rechoosing is always an option! 🌕 The beauty of being human is *we have choice*. We get to create our own individual worlds AND choose how to move through this shared one… What will you choose? 🌕 Putting the focus on relationship with the feminine within could be helpful and supportive this month. Treat yourself and your body as though you were a baby. Soothe, hold, massage…feed yourself in all ways with nurturing care. 💚 May we all choose compassion and love for self and others on this and every day 🙏
