- 'Coney demonstrates an incredible technique coupled with a thoughtfully done video. Anybody who is familiar with The Durutti Column, should certainly pick up this one as well as Coney’s forthcoming album (Spring 2019)' - The Aural Grove
Released: 30th November 2018
'Pavilion' is the first single from the album of the same name (released Spring 2019) and serves as Coney’s first solo release since the critically acclaimed 'The Fall Of The Flamingo Gardens' (2014). 'Pavilion' is an instrumental meditation on idiosyncratic timbre and distilled improvisation that draws on contemporary classical, electronic, minimalism, folk and jazz vernacular.
Working solo with the help of a small community of musician friends from the Trestle label, Coney has forged a vision steeped in futuristic ideas of science, myth and likeness.
The quite stunning visual accompaniment to this music was the vision of Swedish film-maker Helga Fannon (www.helgadorothea.com
The 'Pavilion' music video is almost ghostly in its evoking of the solder between the electrics of the instrumentation and the cold beauty of relentless beats washing upon waves of glitched classical imagery. The video was shot on location in Ramsgate, UK in September of 2018.
'Pavilion' is dedicated to Jonathan Nicholson and family for whom Coney worked as a carer in 2015. This profound and challenging life experience is the primary inspiration for the work herein.
