LAIR / Deimos / Urban Legend Records

April 21, 2021 § Leave a comment

Very happy to announce my track Badb is featured on the Deimos EP out on vinyl on the Barcelona-based label Urban Legend Records.

The A side is the title track by WarΓ‘ with a remix of his track by Sam KDC. And my track Badb is on the B side with a remix from NX1.

In Greek mythology, Deimos is the personification of fear and panic in battles, and twin brother of Phobos who represented fear. Together, they accompanied the god of war in every fight. Two dark and perhaps not very pleasant characters but perfect to represent the series that would be completed with this EP and with which Urban Legend starts a new cycle with more strength than ever.

It’s taken 6 years for Phobos to meet Deimos musically. We believe that it couldn’t have been a more representative moment of what we needed to express due to the uncertainty and confusion we are living. With this work, we explore the somber feelings and existential conflicts that take hold of us in these difficult times, sometimes in contrast with the need for struggle and survival.

Four enfolding tracks by LAIR and WarΓ‘, full of shadows and dark voices, will take you on an inner journey to the deepest within you, represented this time by the powerful remixes full of demonic rhythms and underworld atmospheres of Sam KDC and NX1 who, together with the twin brothers, will accompany other terrible demons in their eagerness to drive you mad and, why not, to save you.

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 humanΒ 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 πŸŒ• 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. πŸŒ• Adam has made a video about his (rather epic!πŸ’«) 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?" πŸŒ• We are at a time of change- there have been many cycles like it before and there are many more like it to come… πŸŒ• 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. πŸŒ• 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! πŸŒ• 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? πŸŒ• 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. πŸ’š May we all choose compassion and love for self and others on this and every day πŸ™

Laura LAIR / Toward Light / Out Now

“Sink into the sound

And move toward light”

You may have noticed my tracks often have silence at the beginning and/or end of them. This is intentional- the silences are just as much a part of the piece as the ‘noise’ πŸ™

Laura LAIR / Adam Perry / New Moon Offering

April 23, 2020 § Leave a comment

​I was deeply moved by this artwork ‘She reveals her power to save her loved ones’ when Adam sent it to me. I tuned in to the picture for a segment of a sound bath I recorded and Adam has put this to a time lapse of him creating his stunning piece which you can watch here:

Adam writes: “The scene is 16th century England at the peak of the witch trials, a young woman is being hidden by loved ones from authorities as many of those trials lead to their execution; but she chooses to reveal herself and her powers as she does not want those caring for her to be seen as an accessory to her ‘heresy’ under the medieval religious beliefs and laws of the time.”

I felt a profound sadness, overwhelm and just depth of emotion when I tuned into the artwork and I think perhaps you’ll be able to feel some of that emotion through my piece “In Light Divine” which accompanies the art in our New Moon video.

Where Am I?
