See Creatures [CASSETTE + DOWNLOAD]

Cameron, Lisa / Sandy Ewen: See Creatures [CASSETTE + DOWNLOAD] (Astral Spirits)

Essentially two guitarists with some very unusual outboard equipment and an odd oceanic attitude, as West Coast/NY transplant guitarist Sandy Ewens meets Austin, TX lap steel guitarist Lisa Cameron, both using objects, percussion and feedback to create a remarkably diverse set of deep sea and nautical sounds, a semblance of sailing on a very temperamental vessel.

Artist Biographies:

"Sandy Ewen was born in Toronto, Canada in 1985, Sandy Ewen received a Bachelor of Architecture from the University of Texas at Austin in 2008. Since then she has resided in Houston, TX where she pursues musical and visual projects and her architecture license. Ewen has released several albums, including a duo with guitarist Tom Carter, a trio with bassist Damon Smith & drummer Weasel Walter, and a rock album with Austin's Weird Weeds. Ewen's visual work is closely tied to her work in sound; she uses both mediums to explore texture, composition and materials.

Ewen's microcollages, enlarged through projection and digital printing, are an exploration of material and technique. Using a unique process pioneered by the artist, natural materials and polymers are torn, liquefied, scorched, melted, cut, and fused. When enlarged, the microscopic nuances of these manipulations are manifested in exquisite detail. Ewen has presented prints of her work at 14 Pews (2012), Spacetaker/Fresh Arts (2012), Khon's (2013) & Galeria Regina (2014).

As an improviser in both art and music, Ewen sees herself as guiding materials and space rather than executing a preconceived composition. "I like to explore mediums and materials and tease out their essence," says Ewen. "Working with slide projections has focused my eye on the subtitles of natural processes of decay and transformation. Through my work, I am asking questions of the materials rather than dictating answers." "

descriptions, reviews, &c.

"The first duo recording from Austin based Lisa Cameron (ST37, Suspirians, Glass Eye, etc) and NY based (formerly Houston based) guitarist Sandy Ewen (Etched in the Eye, Spiderwebs, duos with Damon Smith and Weasel Walter, etc). Both players specialize in extended techniques and sound art rather than any proper genres.

Cameron has started off in Austin in the 80's playing with Roky Erickson and others and has made a name for herself and paved a path for many in the Austin weirdo/improv scene. Here Cameron plays the "Berimbauophone" a homemade instrumet she built herself.

Sandy Ewen's recent relocation to NYC has garnered her a lot of gigs and a lot (well deserved) new followers.

See Creatures is a deliberate play on words with bubbling, watery sounds and feedback, with no discernible way to tell where Cameron's playing ends and Ewen's begins."-Astral Spirits
