“Το All My Hideous Children” collects some of Alice Kemp’s emphatically uncanny rites of evocation. Stripped of conventional music interpretation, “To All My Hideous Children”, out now on Coherent States, is music from a different world; A sound art work soaked in a dark, raw & disturbed experimental intensity that exhibits Kemp’s dream state connection to nature. An audio documentation of eerie recitations, shadows, eroded sounds, field recordings, macabre piano parts and grotesque delusions. An unsettling environment for all her hideous children; not easy to get into, yet impossible to look away once you have been summoned to the obscure world of Alice Kemp.
Alice Kemp is a human ex-voto, living in Devon, England. Her work includes installations, public & private performances, experimental audio works & compositions, poetry and visual arts.
