Product Description

FareWell Poetry is a collective of Parisian musicians and an Anglo-saxon poet and filmmaker. From indie to modern classical to drone and shoegaze, spoken word and experimental film, FareWell Poetry represents the pooled influences of its core members and passionate collaborators. The band’s richly arranged songs seek out subtle and luminous climaxes, the hypnotically simple melodies falling away like scaffolding to reveal a complex structure narrated by a haunted voice drumming out a dark poetry, echoes from a deep well. Somewhere between a sleep-starved Man Ray, the visual performances of Throbbing Gristle or the Velvet Underground, FareWell Poetry exudes a creativity inspired by a state of trance and seeks new boundaries to push back, new doors to open.

Hoping for the Invisible to Ignite was recorded and mixed between Paris, Normandy (FR) and Saint-Margaret of Antioch Church in Leeds (UK), these four haunting orchestral pieces were performed in the studio live, and re-recorded using a ‘wall of sound’ process, adding the natural reverb of the church to the raw tracks. The DVD includes the Super 8/16mm black&white film As True As Troilus by Jayne Amara Ross and a bonus live performance shot by Alain Grodard & Rod Maurice during the ‘Festival des Nouveaux Arts Sacres’ at Saint-Eustache Church in Paris.
