lola de la mata (b.1991) is a london based artist, musician, and composer whose practice focuses around the body, collaboration and listening. lola’s work ranges from monotypes and graphic scores, to installations and compositions for movement, voice, electronics and classical instruments.
lola is the organiser behind the interdisciplinary artist group ‘parallel praxis’, which seeks to support and develop process and individual practice, to provide a wider network, and promote collaboration.
REMISE EN BOUCHE, which translates as palate cleanser, or in the mouth, is both an act of refreshment for the ears, and a commentary on the misogyny women experience in the creative industries.
the album combines field recordings, classical rifts, untrained voice, violin, and transformed feedback noise. the layers co exist, tangle, overlap, to form a textured sonic world, full of movement, with sounds appearing and receding into dark voids.
everything you hear in this album was generated acoustically either with instrumentation or concrete sound sources.
