This Eclectrocasts podcast features vocal and visual artist, sonic explorer, and autonomous dis-illusionist, Sky High Diamonds (UK)
Sky High Diamonds is the musical outlet of Sarah Gatter who defines herself as an experimental DIY sound poet. Inspired by a combination of acoustic sounds, electronic sources, pre-recorded and spontaneous sounds, Sarah often develops homemade percussion to explore space and rhythm. Her work takes on a poetical formation through the use of chanting and physical movement alongside meditative and trancelike vocals and harmonies. She works with drums, beats & pulsing drone-like vibrations, which become the backbone for further constructing sounds and vocals in layers and textures.
Current projects include a short film sound track for the film 'To The Ends Of The Earth' by Frida Go (Zoe Young), 15th-24th November 2017, The Poly, Falmouth, UK, for more information visit Frida Go | Artist Adventurer The film sound & theme track samples a live performance vocal from Ramonda Taleni Te Maiharoa who is a 'Landscape singer,' using her voice to augment the natural sounds around her.
