LoneLady has shared new music as part of the next chapter of her temporary installation project, ‘Scrub Transmissions’, currently taking place on the outskirts of Manchester.
The artist has embedded an MP3 device into a patch of waste ground in Miles Platting, Manchester, with a new transmission playing previously unheard track ‘Little Fugue’. To find the installation follow the map viewable below. You will need to supply your own headphones. The directions in full are on LoneLady’s blog.
The ‘Scrub Transmission’ installation loops continuously until the batteries dies and the track becomes an obsolete entombed relic within the building. It’s estimated the installation will be live for up to two weeks.
‘Little Fugue’ was recorded in the same sessions as 2015's ‘Hinterland’. Since 2016 she’s been holed up in her recording studio in Somerset House Studios amongst other creatives and musicians including Anna Meredith, Charles Jeffrey, GAIKA, Ian Forsyth and Jane Pollard amongst others whilst she works on a new album, pausing momentarily to play shows with New Order, Hot Chip, Roisin Murphy & Primal Scream, Stephen Mallinder (Cabaret Voltaire) and Eric Random.
SCRUB TRANSMISSIONS: MILES PLATTING
“I kept coming here because I had no where else to go. Through a clump of unassuming inner city factory districts I walked, to burn out anxiety patterns and seek consolation, forming my own occult of East Manchester totems and territories, their leylines extending to Audenshaw and Ashton, sites of childhood and birth.
It seemed to offer a habitat, a place to belong. There’s an oblique but deeply felt connection and communication. Humble treasure and gleaming ruincolours, porous with industrial remnants and revenants, their supernatural transmissions still perceivable even as its terrain is changing, vanishing.”
