Klara Lewis released her debut album Ett for the renowned Editions Mego label last year and it was greeted with unanimous applause at TUSK HQ when brought to the attention of our ears by Opal Tapes head honcho and our erstwhile producer, Stephen Bishop.

Lewis employs what is on the surface a simple modus operandi, but applies it with a painterly sensibility of place and spatial awareness. All the sounds on Ett are field recordings built into compositions and all with that delicious sonic contradiction of real life sounds bent and processed digitally that only an artist with a deft ear can bring. Tight rhythms and pulses dissolve into distraction caused by passing aural pleasures; fleeting, forgettable details in everyday sound are granted portent and gravitas, the listener's mind tickled and tricked by the sound it is trying to make sense of.

Not surprisingly, Lewis has a very visual inclination too and her TUSK set will make full use of the Old Town Hall's full-size cinema screen, so expect nothing less than full immersion.
