TROTH - NOTHING STILL IN THE STONE GARDEN CS
Troth (rhymes with oath) is a Newcastle-based duo comprising Amelia Besseny and Cooper Bowman. Nothing Still In The Stone Garden are the first considered recordings made together, although we have released two tapes (recorded later) via Moontown and Essential Minerals and a limited release of live recordings on AST since. NSITSG was an installation in a Newcastle gallery in September 2019 featuring a video work by Greg Perano and a sound component made up of reel-to-reel and hand-cut cassette loops.
We played our first show inside the loops for the event’s opening, a rehearsal of which makes up the A-side (we failed to record the set itself). The B-side is a collage of interventions made occasionally in the gallery during the exhibition’s duration. We have moved into increasingly more structured modes since these recordings (we have actual ‘songs’ now!), but have continued reflecting on the same themes of flux, chaos and beauty found in natural environments first touched on here.
