Music for Empty Venues

music for empty venues

Music for empty venues is a charitable music compilation in response to the Covid-19 crisis. Independent music venues across the country are struggling more than ever due to the imposed lockdown, with many listings cancelled and the uncertainty over any future bookings. This compilation aims to support some of the affected venues within the city of London through the means of a fund-raising, with all profits of the release going to three chosen independent London venues selected by the featured artists. These venues are: Iklectik, Hundred Years Gallery and Jazzlive at the Crypt.

The compilation features a wide range of forward thinking, electronic based musicians who have graced many of London's (UK) independent music venues over the years. We've all come together in this one moment to support the venues that normally support us.

The compilation will be released on Friday 29th May 2020 at a modest price of £3, however, buyers are encouraged to donate more if they can:

Methodical Movements is a London (UK) based label supporting experimental, electronic music. Founded by artist Tony James Morton, the label looks to unearth like-minded, forward thinking composers/performers who utilise electronics as a fundamental part of their practice.

My track is a version of el day de lay which is live-coded in the C programming language, based on rhythmically modulated delays.
