TaikaTalk with Antony

There’s been a connection between ISAN and arts partnership TaikaBox for many years, both of friendship and artistic collaboration. Antony recently spoke with them for their TaikaTalk feature at length about his creative practices, his work as a mastering engineer and how we find space for the natural world in ISAN’s imagined environments, among other things..

OndaRock feature and interview

Over the last few weeks we have been chatting with Alessandro Biancalana from OndaRock magazine whilst he’s been putting together a lengthy article about/interview with us.

It’s pretty humbling to see an overview of a career that spans over twenty years, especially something so thoughtfully put together as this one. We’re really grateful to Alessandro for having the time and patience to wait on our sometimes tardy responses and put together something as thorough as this:

Glass Bird Movement Album Walkthrough

It’s a lovely big day for us today – Glass Bird Movement is finally released on Morr Music! We’ve always enjoyed the process of making albums, and we’ve always employed a peculiar method of compiling each release … so we were really happy that Das Filter asked us to walk through the album and share a little insight into our inner workings. It’s in both English and German if you click through the link:
