Electro EP
Available to buy for £notmuchatall on Bandcamp

Or hear it as part of the Sura Medura group exhibition
2 August – 23 September
Summerhall, Edinburgh

Here’s the first fruits of our recent Sura Medura residency in Hikkaduwa, Sri Lanka: a short album of kinda retro electro tunes made entirely out of field recordings made on the island. Birds? Sure. Bread vans? Yes of course. Monkeys? You BET. Endless honking traffic? Don’t be daft.

Play it loud for your ears and maybe buy a small copy sure why not.

STATUS

Tanuja has spent most of May at the Staatstheater Mainz and then Battersea Arts Centre, sound designing this new show by Chris Thorpe and Rachel Chavkin. It previews at Battersea Arts Centre in June before heading up to Summerhall for the Edinburgh Festival.

SORTITION
by Selina Thompson
Sound design by Tanuja Amarasuriya

September – October 2018
Arnolfini, Bristol

Sortition is a 14-18 NOW commission marking a century since Parliament first gave the (certain) women the right to vote. Tanuja first worked with Selina in 2017, sound designing her show salt. Anyone who knows the Arnolfini galleries will know they’re not going to be the most straightforward spaces to sound design… but it’s a super cool team on this project so we’ll see what emerges.

Keep an eye on the Arnolfini website for deets on opening times and related events.

Team MAYK: “Some colleagues in Canada do this thing called Thought Residencies. We talked to them about us trying it out in the UK. Do you want to do a Thought Residency? No pressure.”

We’ve been recording occasional, brief thoughts over November. Check out the sound files here.

The brilliant Mayfest Radio got us in to chat music and influences for their Music Is My Radar slot. In between us blathering on, there are some EXCELLENT tunes. I promise. And also some terrible Brazilian chips pop.

It’s here for your ears, on Mixcloud
