about

Bay Area duo glou glou return to Full Spectrum for their sophomore
release, fey flight founders. Comprised of Mills College alum Gretchen Jude and Arjun Mendiratta – a.k.a. subnaught – the duo has
become a quiet force on the Full Spectrum roster, pairing computers
and electronics with koto, violin and found objects to create their unique brand of improvisational ambience.

Following on from their 2014 debut, hymn her hum, this latest work
eschews the glitchy minimalism that defined their earlier sessions, opting instead for a more open sonic palette that is eminently human, yet utterly unfamiliar.

fey flight founders begins with glou glou’s human components front and center. Mendiratta’s violin takes the lead, with Jude’s wordless vocals creeping around the edges. A glistening mosaic falls into place, which the duo proceeds to digitally deconstruct. Gradually, the familiar is transformed into the otherworldly; acoustic resonance transposed to plastic worlds operating on their own alien biological logic.

The session comes up for air at the midway point, with Jude’s koto providing an anchoring point in our world. Like a cybernetic spring, however, the organic is once again subsumed and assimilated. Walls of pulsating drone and chirping sonics emerge from the silicon soup, giving way to cavernous sub-bass and splintered loops, which see the session through to its ultimate conclusion.

glou glou describes their music as ‘the birdsong of the future,’ and fey flight founders sees them coming a few steps closer to realizing that vision.
