"Through A Vulnerable Occur" is the result of a dialogue between the photographer Sophie Gabrielle and the musician Seabuckthorn, initiated by IIKKI between June 2019 and February 2020.
The complete project works in two physical imprints:
A book and a disc (Vinyl/CD)
The Vinyl / CD / Photobook is still available at the source here :
More info on Sophie Gabrielle's photography :
"Speaks to something otherworldly and haunted within the human psyche, something that feels instinctive and ancient."
TRIANGLE MUSIC COLLECTIVE
"Seabuckthorn plunges us into this paradoxical state. Neither really a nightmare nor really a dream, a stroll perhaps between psychedelia, noise, drone and post-Rock."
"Expanded atmospheric loops moving towards horizons of pristine meditation"
MUSIC WONT SAVE YOU
"Some artists stand out in the various sub genres of ambient because of either their approach or their choice of instrumentation. Andy Cartwright aka Seabuckthorn is one of them."
DRIFTING ALMOST FALLING
"Showcases Cartwright's ingenious and endlessly evolving talent for rendering his guitar largely unrecognizable as such, yet his emphasis on details, textures, and small scale dynamics is even more pronounced and masterful this time around"
"Another remarkable LP where inspired string work further enriches the already fertile neo-classical, cinematic landscape."
THE SLOW MUSIC MOVEMENT
"Cartwright’s melodies proclaim the unseen. Another world waits just beyond the light, lurking on the fringes of sight and the edges of the photograph; no one can see it, but it’s there"
"Tracks on “Through A Vulnerable Occur” look a bit more rugged and cool. They float in the air like little figures or ghosts"
"The juxtaposition of the woody hues of the English multi-instrumentalist once again produces sparks, its density would sometimes go so far as to feed a fiery fire flirting with the drone"
