After traveling the world alongside migrating birds and diving the oceans in acclaimed nature documentaries, Winged Migrations and Oceans, Jacques Perrin and Jacques Cluzaud return to the lush green forests that emerged across Europe following the last Ice Age. Winter had gone on for 80,000 years when, in a short period of time the ice retreated, the landscape metamorphosed, the cycle of seasons was established and the beasts occupied their new kingdom. Seasons, with its exceptional footage of animals in the wild, is the awe-inspiring and thought-provoking tale of the long shared history that binds humankind with the natural world.
Drawing on the thematic conflict between human and animal that underpins Jacques Perrin’s haunting Seasons, Long Distance Poison will use modular synthesizers and analog keyboards to create a live score that resonates with ambient and minimal forms of tranquility and darkness, creating a soundtrack of environmental collapse.
Long Distance Poison is the Brooklyn based experimental electronics project of Nathan Cearley and Erica Bradbury. Through a developed process that uses generative systems, pseudo randomness, improvisation, layering, spectral modulation, drone and noise, LDP creates music that opens up to the mystery. They have performed at the Ende Tymes Festival, the Basilica Hudson 24-Hour Drone Festival, The Wassaic Project, the MOMA PS1 NY Art Book Fair, the Voice of the Valley Noise Festival, Printed Matter and Pioneer Works and have releases on Hausu Mountain, Constellation Tatsu and Thurston Moore’s Ecstatic Peace! Their most recent album, Astro Topoi, is out now on Deep Distance Recordings
