Premiere: Embedded Figures Shares Two Videos 'St Kilda' + 'Inferno'

Tuesday 16th October, 2018 10:52AM

Melbourne via Dunedin electronic artist Embedded Figures aka Bianca Amber Skye (Strange Harvest) has unveiled a pair of haunting new songs following her sublime 2017 album Dark Artery. The tunes 'St Kilda' and 'Inferno' were originally written for a live collaborative project titled Le Tre Arterie with Auckland musician and multi-media artist Ducklingmonster (Futurians), and are accompanied by mind-melting collaged visuals provided by the aforementioned fellow Rise Of The City Cat Cult member. Both tracks are set to appear on Australian independent label Detonic Recording’s MVP compilation out digitally this month, with the vinyl version dropping in December.

The artist will next be materialising at Melbourne club night Win Win Wednesday alongside Activities of Daily Living and Infraghosts at The Last Chance Rock & Roll Bar on 31st October with live "projected apparitions" by Ducklingmonster, and promises a live touring project is on the cards for 2019. Embedded Figures kindly lifted the lid on the ideas surrounding her latest collaborative works...

"As ‘Inferno’ is being released in tandem with the track, ‘St Kilda’, (Inferno is the 'B-side') it made sense for me to approach Ducklingmonster to create videos for both tracks. I trust Ducklingmonster’s vision, we have a history of sonic and AV collaboration, and I feel like her visuals have added a sense of cohesion across Embedded Figures projects.

I love the collage-like quality, the enigmatic colour palettes, and unexpected layering of images in Ducklingmonster’s videos. Sonically, Embedded Figures is multi-layered and dense, a bit of a swamp-thing at times, so a visual narrative style that is not overtly interpretable is appealing. Visually, it’s a world that makes sense to me."

Detonic Recording’s MVP compilation is out digitally on Tuesday 23rd October, and available on vinyl in December.
