stephen molyneux

"...last year Stephen Molyneux (Horsehair Everywhere) was living in Thailand. Riding around on motorbikes, running through the jungle, playing noise shows at Bangkok art spaces, going on visa-renewing border-crossing adventures, all while the Red Shirts were stirring up more and more intense political unrest. On one of his excursions through Battambang & Siem Reap provinces in Cambodia, Molyneux made these field recordings on cassette. Expect “distant ancient rites of dawn, village sounds recorded from bicycle baskets, ensemble street performances,and wedding party music echoing through the ballroom of an abandoned mansion”. Edition of 40 pro-dubbed / imprinted red tapes with a cover photo taken in Bospo Village, Battambang by the artist." no kings
