OVER / AT E.P.: FOLKS' SONGS by Malin Lewis; Matthew Arthur Williams; Harry Josephine Giles; Jamie Crewe
CDr in full colour slip case, with risograph printed mini zine, 2021
FOLKS’ SONGS is a new E.P. from the trans music-making world of OVER / AT. It comprises three exclusive, newly commissioned audio pieces by three Scotland-based trans, non-binary, or other gender-minority artists: new songs for/by/with the Folk. It is unlike any trans music-making which has come before it in Scotland.
This EP shines a light on the different ways we – trans, non-binary, and other gender-minority people – are using our voices. It features musicians with backgrounds from punk to trad, and in particular it loves the beauty of our untrained and unheard voices, freeforming outside of social expectation. You will hear inventive (non-)traditional music, angry punk howls, and delicious beats.
HOLD IN UR HOT LITTLE HANDS A DAY THAT NEVER HAPPENED / a bright yellow flying saucer from a parallel timestream / ur very own trans ammonite
OVER / AT is a new concert series and trans music-making world, being slowly woken from its sleep by composer Rufus Isabel Elliot. We are focused on the voice – how we speak, sing, hum, shout, and howl. We aim to make work by/with/for trans, non-binary, and other gender minority folks.
