Recording new album

Hey all

Over January I went to Bristol in the UK. I recorded and mixed an album with John Parish (PJ Harvey, Sparklehorse, Giant Sand etc) and Ali Chant. It’s sounding great and I can’t wait to share it with you in winter this year. Have a look at www.instagram.com/laurajeanmusic for photos. Here is one of JP on the drums.

Performing… it’s ART

Barnaby Smith at ABC arts interviewed myself, Gareth Liddiard, Dan Kelly and Kram for his blog about the art of performing. Have a look here: http://www.abc.net.au/arts/blog/studio-shots/art-live-performance-barnaby-smith-121101/default.htm

I get a bit new age when I talk about performing. Fortunately Barnaby was kind enough to edit most of it out but the phrase ‘in the moment’ does appear at least once.

This article surrounds an exhibition I was a part of called ‘Live – an intimate study of the art of performing’. Some amazing artists were involved. Here is a picture of director Jasmin Tarasin showing Rufus Wainwright how to browse the internet.
