In 2019 I began a solo musical project under the name IZEY. My first release Xaptation was featured on Radio 3 Late Junction, the project was an exploration of sounds and aesthetics replicating the ghosts of a post-industrial landscape: sawn wood, plastic bags rustling and growling creatures form layered soundscapes. Sampling and sound processing, at the core of Xaptation, aims to resemble the violence of resource extraction and the tangled ecologies of creatures and critters through manipulation and granular synthesis.
Melodic rests convey the haunting sounds of absence and loss and echo the lament of irrevocable damage. Synthetic and natural sounds coalesce and out the wreckage hybrid forms emerge.
