released July 1, 2017

Written and performed by Brent Cross and Lisa Butel. Recorded, mixed and mastered by Brent Cross @ the Grizz Studio.

Lisa Butel and Brent Cross are sound artists living in Vancouver, BC. They create experimental music using live vocal looping, vocal sound manipulation, improvised and live sound synthesis and sample collage and prepared guitar.

Their live performances are energized and directed by their love of improvisational aesthetics that they have absorbed and crafted over years of involvement in NOW Society’s Improvisational workshop series. Their music bends and drifts, rages and diminishes, layers and undulates and is original in each performance. Butel brings the analog world of live vocals front and centre to the music and delivers vocals from operatic to guttural and machine-like to demonic growls through complex and multiple loop cycles . 

The music is a juxtaposition of vocal acoustic sound and analog and digital wave forms. Their sound explores the psycho acoustic properties of sound and attempts to create tension, release and structural fruition via changing and evolving, additive and subtractive synthesis and the affected vocal performance.

The album Helispectre explores the relationship that we have with inherited fears. This theme came to the forefront as the couple traveled through Northern Europe and Berlin.
Confronting these fears led to the sounds that were improvised and recorded on the train to Berlin.
