Super Inuit & Jessica Schouela – Forebearer 

Out November 20th on download and cassette limited to 50 copies. 

Full album:

Soundcloud | Bandcamp

Forebearer is the audio product of a collaboration between Super Inuit (Brian Pokora) and Jessica Schouela. The compilation of Jessica’s poems launched the project and, although written at different times, they were chosen based on a shared sense of curiosity, vulnerability, and a wish to explore familial interactions. The poems are a play between viewing and reviewing history and at the same time, interrogating a possible future. Although the poems had not originally been intended as spoken word, they nonetheless lend themselves to an oral reading, even more so in conversation with Brian’s underlying soundscapes on which the readings sit.

The cover of the record is a portrait drawn by Jessica of her grandfather in the 1930s, who lived until 102. In this regard, he represents not only the literal forebearer of the poet, but reflects a life that began in times that could only view the present as some sort of sci-fi existence. Nevertheless, as humans we adapt, a sentiment that ultimately sets the tone for the multi-media project.

This tape was put together for a Record Store Day gig that was never meant to be. It’s almost a split between myself now and myself in 2011. Side A, the more recent of the two makes heavy use of samples to create dissonant and often ambient repetitive drone. Side B was created under a weight of anxiety caused by a four year course in how fluxitive everything we know is. This tape is a cleansing experience and now that these tracks are out I’m looking forward to the set which will likely be the fruititions of a collaborative project with Jess Schouela.

Writing for writers

Have a look at this video describing Sally Bayley’s narrative non-fiction book titled The Private Life of the Diary: from Pepys to Tweets. The book is a study on the status and role of diaries in contemporary life as a means for self-knowing/self-reporting. You can watch the video and pledge for her book here: http://unbound.co.uk/books/the-private-life-of-the-diary
