Spiral Dial write stories and improvise electroacoustic soundscapes to bring them to life.
“a stunning composition of mesmerising beauty” – Grotesqualiser
“the ultimate magical sonic art” – Last Day Deaf
The twisted musical core of the spiral consists of Rhian the robo recorder: part computer, part faux baroque plastic reproduction. Rhian does not subscribe to musical genres but has been told it sounds like a cobra who went to choir school.
Constructed by Liza with the help of Leafcutter John and powered by Max for Live, Rhian mainly inhabits unnerving dystopian landscapes and enjoys jam sessions with candyfloss pandas.
Liza has previously collaborated with James Holden and The Memory Band amongst others. Fellow intrepid explorers include David Ryder Prangley (Adam Ant, Rachel Stamp) , who plays the bass guitar and sometimes narrates, and Adam Hayes on percussion.
