RACHAEL DADD

17.45  - 18.45 | SATURDAY | STAGE 2
With a string of releases on Talitres (EU/UK), Broken Sound (UK), Sweetdreams Press and Angel’s Egg (Japan) and much support from DJs on Radio 1, Radio 2, Xfm, 6 Music, France Musique among many other stations worldwide, experimental folk multi-instrumentalist Rachael Dadd has just released her strongest and most impacting body of work into the public sphere. Two years in the making ‘We Resonate’ out on Talitres (UK/EU) and Sweetdreams Press (Japan), is an uplifting celebration of life and by far her most collaborative. It sees Rachael joined by Laura Marling’s sideman Marcus Hamblett, experimental Japanese multi-instrumentalist ICHI, Alessi Laurent-Marke of Alessi’s Ark, Rozi Plain, Emma Gatrill of Sons of Noel and Adrian, and Thomas Heather of Woodpecker Wooliams. 

 

Born from the richness of Rachael Dadd’s semi-nomadic lifestyle, partly recorded live in a studio followed by playful overdubbing in Rachael’s front room, ‘We Resonate’ carves out a niche of its own, crossing genres from folk, through pop and experimental. Pulsing with poly-rhythms on prepared-piano, homemade xylophone, voice, clarinets, typewriter, boxes of matches, steel drum, tap-dancing, clapping, and even the heartbeat of Rachael’s baby in the womb, it reveals that her love of African field-recordings and the spirit embodied within them has seeped into the diverse mix of influences, along with Steve Reich, Tune Yards, and the Japanese underground/ improv scene.
