Listen: Cara Stacey – Dark Matter

Cara Stacey - Dark Matter

“Things That Grow” is a fluid musical project exploring the sonic possibilities of southern African musical bows within improvisatory contexts. On the album, Cara Stacey performs contemporary compositions and improvisations on the umrhubhe and uhadi bows with Shabaka Hutchings (clarinet, tenor saxophone), Seb Rochford (drums), Ruth Goller (bass), Crewdson (concertronica), and Dan Leavers (synths/production). Combining original compositions by Cara and Shabaka with freely conceived improvisation, the album aims to stretch the boundaries of bow music in an ensemble and create something entirely new. Listen to lead track “Dark Matter” below. Big fan of this.

“Things That Grow” is out now via Kit Records (buy).
