Boomkat Product Review:
Wysing Polyphonic has emerged from the Wysing Polyphonic music festival, now in its 8th year, which has programmed the likes of Beatric Dillon, Elaine Mitchener, Hannah Sawtell, Helena Hauff, Holly Herndon, James Holden, Karen Gwyer, Klara Lewis, Nik Colk Void and Russell Haswell, amongst many others, play at the Cambridgeshire centre.
"Ectopia are Adam Christensen, Jack Brennan and Viki Steiri. Previous works have included sound-tracking Jack Smith’s experimental film Normal Love (1963) and Carl Theodor Dreyer’s The Passion of Joan of Arc (1928).
"For the first release on the Wysing Polyphonic label three-piece Ectopia have created a suite of seven new works in which intricate cello and screeching and spoken word vocals are carried along on a wave of dark electronica, taking the listener on a journey into sad acid house, scratched DVDs, lipstick clogged with rolling tobacco and hangovers with absent lovers."
