‘An astonishing vocalist of haunting emotional power’ - The Guardian
Seaming To will release her new three track EP ‘Natural Process’ via digital and limited-edition lathe cut 10” vinyl on Lo Recordings on the 29th of July 2022.
‘The Natural Process’ is a reworking of Susumu Yokota’s track of the same name and a perfect example of Seaming’s distinct and inventive soundworld. Reminiscent of Laurie Anderson and Bjork and yet utterly unique. Seaming’s luxurious vocal tones wrap and weave their way around a pulsing web of electronic sound. A virtual choir from another world.
‘proneandsupine’ is an immersive choral reverie that demonstrates the full beauty and majesty of Seaming’s voice. The EP concludes with ‘Test Patterns’an excerpt from a live soundtrack composed for the premiere of Victoria Keddie’s film Test Patterns for the closing night of the Basquiat exhibition at the Barbican, London 2018. A beguiling and mysterious soundworld like no other.
Seaming To is a composer, vocalist, multi-instrumentalist and producer born in London and comes from a family of concert pianists. She has been described as ‘the voice of a 21st Century’ (BBC Radio1), and an artist that is truly ‘avant garde’ (Robert Wyatt).
