We’ve been talking about what we’ve been calling our debut album for a while now, Be It Hot, Humid or Otherwise, which continues to edge towards release. But it turns out this won’t be our debut, because this cassette release on the Alberts Basement label has snuck out first.
Testament of the Trinity is in fact the debut Moe Chee release. This cassette features the audio of this video, documenting the Day 6 performance of our 7 day public space event End of April, Beginning of May (2015). Jen Callaway was our guest performer that night outside the State Library, and she also edited the video together. The cassette has two different covers, each featuring images taken from stills of the video.
I had thought previously that the soundscape captured in Jen’s video edit was really interesting and could be something in itself, but it took Michael of Alberts Basement to suggest its release and make it happen.
The music/sound of Be It Hot, Humid or Otherwise has been completed, and Tasmanian-based artist, Anna Dusk, is currently working on the artwork for a short edition of individually handmade CDRs for the album. It should be out later this year – Clinton.
