caroline mckenzie Recent excavation of 2 live sets from 1999 by Brian Lavelle and myself - I could remember very little about these and was very pleasantly surprised. 05/06/1999 is a guitar/bass/delay piece, 20/11/1999 is field recordings, handheld sampler, controlled feedback and other sounds I can't quite identify (forgive my memory). Tape as time capsule. Favorite track: Glasgow 20/11/1999.

Caroline McKenzie
Brian Lavelle

"Glasgow 1999 features two sets by Inversion, Brian Lavelle's project with Caroline McKenzie.
The November recording is a "time-bending" electronic set, with a modular synth hissing and wriggling over lapping water. As the filters do their work, the synth becomes a bass throb, harried by gnawing static and submerged voices.
June's "solarflaring" set taps into the hidden reverse of English folk music, with hurdy-gurdy like loops skipping over a distorted guitar chug. Over time, the loops dissipate into feedback while McKenzie picks out a descending figure. A trip.
21 years later, McKenzie is on a hot streak with the modular synth odysseys of Beth Gripps, while Lavelle continues to deliver masterful collages of field recordings and electronics.
Glasgow 1999 is a timely reminder of where these outstanding yet overlooked artists came from."
