“New Landscape” Is Out (Sort Of) – An Update On Coronavirus

May 25, 2020

So, I figure I had better give an update to people who are wondering where the CDs are – they have been held up because the plant I normally use has closed for a Coronacation. I have found a new plant and things are moving treacle slow. But, we have a new release out … sort of…


“New Landscape” by Kcin & Brendan Clark is out today and we are missing the CDs – even the artist is missing the CDs which is a really sad state of affairs.

Bit of a sh*t-show really.

I can only apologise to Kcin & Brendan Clark for cocking this up like I cocked up Via Nova’s release.

The CDs are on the way, I have been told, although for now you will have to contend with a lossless dowload if you want to purchase the album right now.

The CDs are on their way to you Nick & Brendan.

Nicholas Meredith (Kcin) and Brendan Clark are two musicians from Australia. The music they create together is intricate and vast. The two met whilst studying and have played together in every conceivable situation over the last decade. ‘New Landscape’ is their first recording as a duo. The session recorded at Golden Retriever Studios in Sydney, is completely improvised.

Individually, their love of giant sonic landscapes is evident but underpinning this is a depth of subtlety that only comes from years of performing together. Their music is greatly inspired by the extreme beauty, harsh reality and modern hypocrisies of the Australian continent

Coming from a jazz and improvising background the pair really find their feet in the sculpting and demolition of sound. Nicholas (Kcin) produced and mixed the album, lending a sonic weight that mirrors his own productions. Clark’s mastery of the bass is the centrepiece for their infinite aural possibilities.

The duo have played a variety of interesting show together over the years and are now looking to perform in Europe and Japan.

But, ultimately – there is noting I can do. I feel a bit like a chubby tortoise that has rolled on it’s back and can’t get up – I am in the hands of the plant who are making the CDs and the delivery service. If you have ordered a CD of “New Landscape” or by Via Nova – please hold tight.
