Heavy Fog releases Bespoken plays Nick Storring & Daniel Brandes

JUST COVERbetterHalifax’s Divorce has recently launched a subsidiary: Heavy Fog, a label which documents ‘deep undercurrents in classical music’

I’m honoured to say that their inaugural release is a tape by my band Bespoken playing a composition of mine and one by wonderful person and composer Daniel Brandes, a Canadian branch of the Wandelweiser group.

Bespoken consists of myself, Ilana Waniuk & Cheryl Duvall of the Thin Edge New Music Collective, Matthew Ramolo (aka Khôra) and Brandon Valdivia (of numerous projects—Picastro, Not the Wind Not the Flag, and Mas Aya to name a few.)

Stay tuned for details of (a) release show(s)!  In the meantime dig on this little Exclaim! story about the label.
