Premiere: Flo Wilson Shares Debut '(Please) Keep Breathing' EP

Monday 6th November, 2017 12:04PM

Wellington experimental artist Flo Wilson (formerly known as Foxtrot) has shared her debut three-song collection titled (Please) Keep Breathing. Occupying a zone between ambient abstraction and more traditional musicality, the tracks blend electronics and field recordings from her "everyday sound world" into exciting new forms which encourage listeners to keep engaged with their own environments. You can catch Wilson performing live at her EP release party alongside WOMB and Hera Lindsay Bird at Wellington's Caroline on Friday 17th November, and at the Audio Foundation’s three day celebration of electronic experimentalism, the Eeeow! Festival on Sunday 19th November in Auckland. Here's Wilson on her ideas behind the new collection...

'(Please) Keep Breathing' is a piece which was written with the intention of exploring the relationship between the human body and modern mechanics. It sought to blur the lines of where the body left off and the machine began. As the writing progressed, it started to become a response to hearing my partner choke in their sleep without waking. It's about that quiet process of checking your phone is charged, you know where the emergency medicine is in case of an emergency. It's the half-awake state you enter when you're on high alert if someone you love is not safe."
