News: Rob Swain And Andrea Parker Call In Support For Their Rewire Project

Curated by Rob Swain and Andrea Parker Rewire seeks to realign the relationship between art and music by asking the musician to respond to artwork instead of the artwork’s traditional role in supporting a musical release. They’ve linked together some of the leading urban artists and electronic experimentalists today to be involved including Cristian Vogel, Luke Vibert, Evac and Clatterbox on the audio side and Augustine Kofie, Moneyless, sheOne and Phil Ashcroft on the visual art.

In order to realise this ambitious project they’ve set up a Kickstarter campaign to fund it, they’re nearly at the target of £5,000 but are calling on last minute pledgers to realise their goal before this Saturday 9th August.

For more information and to pledge check the Kickstarter here.

And We’re Back…

It’s been a good year (and a bit) since null+void has been active. It’s a one woman show so other priorities in my life took over for a time but now I’m happy to be getting the site back online and re-opening a portal for the music I think is ace.

And also, and most excitingly, I’ll be launching a record label incarnate of the blog releasing music from some individuals who I’ve been a big fan of for many years. More official news on that to come in the coming month, there will be vinyl.

There’s also a lot in store for the podcast series – this is where the bulk of my efforts will be focussed in spotlighting certain artists in way of a mix and interview focus. First up is Clatterbox who has just released an album that is nothing short of beautiful and then a real stalwart of the electro domain Mr Billy Nasty who’s fresh from launching a new label arm of his Electrix empire there’s plenty to talk about with him so eyes on the site in the coming weeks.

Plus to celebrate the re-birth of this website the good people of Rinse FM have invited us to guest on March 8th from midnight-2am. So put that in your diaries and get locked at Rinse.FM on the night.

I’d also like to give a big thanks to nodatavailable for his behind the scenes help and hosting services and Lindsey Weir for the new logo and artwork.

Download: Legowelt’s 1981 Korg Mono/Poly Synth Sample Pack

I’ve been one of the lucky ones who has been privy to a pre-listen of Legowelt’s new album, due for a release on Clone this year and it’s stunning, some say the best ever and I wouldn’t argue with that. That’s not all Mr. Wolfers has been busying himself with of late, as he has just this week upped a samplepack to his site from his 1981 Korg Mono/Poly synthesizer.
