Lawrence English Profiled

From The Guardian:

To certain circles, the Australian sound artist needs no introduction. Described by Fact Mag as one of ambient music’s modern masters and “responsible for a series of mind-bending field recordings”, English is also the founder of Australian record label Room40.

This year Room40 marked its 15th birthday with concerts in Olso, Geneva, London and Copenhagen; with shows in Canada and North America scheduled too. In July, celebrations shift to Sydney’s Carriageworks for Open Frame festival. Among others, the festival lineup will feature the celestial murk of Portland’s Grouper, otherwise known as solo artist Liz Harris, the premiere of an electro-acoustic work from musician and producer Jim O’Rourke, and the curatorial coup of William Basinski.
