about

Bloxham Tapes BT29

The 29th release on Bloxham Tape is from sound artist and self-taught musician Lori E Allen, cellist and mixed media artist Katie Spafford and illustrator and prison psychotherapist Deborah Wale – improvising collective Tears|OV.

SEND IN THE CLOWNS...

'Pluto’s Return' is inescapably an album with Covid-19 in its DNA. Tears|OV’s incredible set at Iklektic in Waterloo was the last live performance Bloxham Tapes caught before stay-at-home orders were finally issued by the UK’s incompetent populist PM – Grim Reaper as Grimaldi. Coronavirus found unwilling hosts in some of the album’s participants. Conversations about the project unfolded over Zoom. Time was also put out of joint. A familiar story. But we are delighted to share this work with you now. 

“As is/was undoubtedly the case for many creatives, the Covid 19 pandemic gave us a two-faced gift of fear and time,” says Deborah. “Our desperate human attempt to reason with nature and a lack of personal freedom leads to musings about such cliches as the human condition, politics and the influence of the solar system.”

SOUL CYCLE EMERGENCY CONTACT...

What were Tears|OV’s conclusions? “It’s so much easier to be told off by the stars then accept responsibility for our species' splurge,” Deborah adds. “Let us lament that we don't have the technology – or should I say luxury – of the machine revolution sent to destroy us in the classic maximum overdrive.... Humans here, humans here..... Instead we are to be slowly ripped to shreds by our own snot.”

Pass the tissues and immerse yourself in the astral and infernal world of Tears|OV.
