Listen to the new and timely Laurence Pike single ‘Nero’ – a moment of contemplation in a particularly tumultuous world. The single is accompanied by two complementary motion-capture videos by Australian artist and film-maker Clemens Habicht, including an innovative interactive version. Official video on YouTube.
Pike continues in a rich creative vein with the release of Prophecy, his third solo album in as many years, following Holy Spring (2019) and Distant Early Warning (2018). Created in response to Australia’s recent catastrophic fires, the music on Prophecy adopts the working formula of ‘one-take’ studio performances for drum kit and sampler; channelling the moment through Pike’s singular, organic use of electronics, and intuitively constructed arrangements.
