Blind Dog Studio Presents:
Brainchild of Australian James Marples (Colonial Sun ) and multi instrumentalist Mally Harpaz (Anna Calvi, Hazel Iris, Eran Karniel, Jessica Lauren).
performs her original compositions joined by a small number of phenomenal musicians and special guests. These distinct pieces were mainly written as part of a collaboration with award-winning video artist Clara Aparicio Yoldi. Mally’s reverence for the profound creates mysterious melodic lines and shares a luscious ambience with other contemporary pioneers such as Steve Reich, Max Richter, and Nils Frahm.
Colonial Sun is the musical moniker of James Marples, Australian singer-songwriter whose dark balladry has drawn comparisons with Howe Gelb, Sun Kil Moon and Mark Lanegan.
Emotionally lucid and at times surreal, these songs draw on imagery from the Australian landscape to the decaying monuments of Empire.
Sparse and delicate accompaniment is provided by Rose Asprey (cello, vocals) and Mally Harpaz (drums, percussion).
