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

Out now on the Cyclic Self Bandcamp 🙏

My track ‘Breo’, created as a standalone fragment of this piece, is also out today on the DOE’s ‘Lee Lines’ mixtape: https://thedepartmentofenergy.bandcamp.com/

“The third release from The Department of Energy celebrates the real and imagined links, connections, alignments and energies shared by a raft of artists working within and without the rural, the riparian and the gothic. It is a Landscape Mixtape containing strangers, islands, friends, family, Brigid, crossings, legends, language, peaks, valleys, engines, forecasts, dunes, cures, tombs, blooms, recollections and incantations.”

The launch of which can be heard here 🔥

Laura LAIR / Adam Perry / 2020 Collaboration Complete

December 31, 2020 § Leave a comment

2020 comes to a close in just a few hours here in Wicklow, Ireland. And along with it, my collaboration with wonderful artist and human Adam Perry also concludes.

It has been such a rewarding and nourishing experience creating these Full Moon pieces throughout the year. I have really enjoyed collaborating with Adam both for his artistic talents and for the truly fantastic being that he is. I leave 2020 with a body of work I am proud of and a new friend that I am very grateful for.

Thank you to all who have listened/viewed and engaged with these pieces throughout the year. I hope they have brought some light each month and I hope you enjoy seeing them altogether in this video!

Wishing you all a peaceful transition into 2021, may the new year bring you all you could wish for and more.

Le grá, Laura
