Published Jan 10, 2017L CON (a.k.a. Toronto artist and Del Bel member Lisa Conway) released a single titled The Distance of the Moon back in 2015, then followed it up with a full-length album called Moon Milk last year. Now, she's shared another musician's interpretation of a song from that LP.
"At Daybreak" has been reworked by Portugal-born, Stockholm-based artist an.rost. The pair met in class at the Sonic Arts Research Centre in Belfast, Ireland, making the new version of the track a truly international affair.
An.rost describes his music as electro-acoustic compositions that try to "place the listener in ambiguous scenarios" with a combination of "rough sonorities and smooth developments."
Those techniques applied to "At Daybreak" result in a track wrapped in dark, eerie, electro-tinged ambience, punctuated by thumps of bass and Conway's haunting vocals.
