Capac are a four piece group, based in the UK, from Athens, Bristol, Liverpool and London, consisting of Stuart Cook, Matthew Parker, Gary Salomon, and Kate Smith. They describe their beautiful shimmering electronics as “sonic explorations of the murkier spaces in between – new music“.
Their new album, their 3rd, dropped April 3rd on This Is It Forever. Entitled After Lights Out it features 10 pieces incorporated and inspired by the poetry of Tom Harding and his Night Work collection. On the record the group explore and expand Harding’s material with their minimal ambient experimental electro-acoustic approach, something they develop further still with their session mix for Mantis Radio. Alongside two tracks from the album, their mix features music and sound from yan jun, Sylvia Plath, Jan Jeli-nek, Henry Cowell, Robert Frost,Samuel Beckett, Crows Labyrinth, Liturgy, Gerard Manley Hopkins, Bernard Par-me-giani, and Beethoven.
Sit back. Relax. Let the sonic tapestry of Capac’s session mix wash over you.
