SHAPE ARTISTS PRESENTED:
SWAN MEAT (US/DE)
A special event presented by Unconscious Archives, SONICA – Festival of Transitory Art, Slovenia– celebrating their 10th festival anniversary , and the Austrian Cultural Forum London, which among other performances will feature SHAPE artist Swan Meat’s immaculately crafted post-club poetic-electronics.
Reba Fay (b. 1994), alias Swan Meat, is a poet, audio engineer, and composer from Washington, D.C. Informed by her experience with chronic illness & body dysmorphia, her work pairs pairs “a carnivalesque assemblage of spoken word pieces” with jarring, arrhythmic industrial and ambient compositions, built from a library of memories teeming with sonic detritus: vestigial feeding tube, bytes of heart monitor. Her debut EP, Bounty, released on Paris’ PERMALNK imprint, which explored recovery from bulimia nervosa through the lense of Samus Aran from the Metroid series, premiered on Thump & was listed as one of Mixmag’s best club/bass releases of the month.
