Wriggle” è la nuova traccia del polistrumentista londinese Cosmo Sheldrake tratta dall’atteso debut album The Much Much How How and I, in uscita il 6 Aprile per Transgressive Records.

Diretto da Wilm Danby, il video mescola diversi stili di animazione con alcuni pezzi live in grado di creare un’atmosfera molto particolare e caratteristica, proprio come lo è la musica di Cosmo.

“In the video for Wriggle, we follow a bird as she introduces us to three separate systems and their daily tasks and habits. Sunflowers dance, ships brave the frothing seas, fish glug past volcanic vents, a scraggly bird gets eaten by a sea monster and galleons with netherworldly banditos dance and sing. Put some pickles on. This is a dance through a sequence of fermenting notions.”, ha detto Cosmo commentando il video.

Danby ha deciso di occuparsi di tutti gli aspetti della produzione del video: dai costumi alla scenografia, dall’editing agli effetti speciali. In queta nuova creazione le splendide maschere da girasole sono state ideate da Flora Wallace, il tutto accompaganto dal lavoro del paziente cameraman Orban Wallace.

La traccia è stata co-prodotta insieme a Matthew Herbert (Bjork, Mica Levi) ed è uno dei pezzi sicuramente più immediati di Cosmo. Wriggle è il quarto estratto dal debut album, ed è stata anticipata nei mesi scorsi da Egg and Soldiers, Come Along and Mind Of Rocks (Feat. Bunty).

Queste 4 tracce (sostenute da BBC 6Music, Spotify and Hype Machine) ci regalano una visione affascinante e colorata dell’originalissimo The Much Much How How and I.

Cosmo ha inoltre annunciato il tour primaverile che toccherà diverse città europee e farà tappa anche in ITALIA, a Roma, Milano e Bologna il 9, 10 e 11 maggio.

The Much Much How How and I was written under the influence of a diverse group of musicians – ranging from Flying Lotus and Tom Ze to Moondog and Stravinsky – and shaped by Sheldrake’s study of anthropology at the University of Sussex, his long standing interest in ethnomusicology and a trip to Mardi Gras in New Orleans. It will be available on limited edition vinyl, CD and download and is available to pre-order here.

Cosmo Sheldrake grew up surrounded by both music and a deep understanding and fascination with the natural world. His father, Rupert Sheldrake, is a biologist who comes from a long line of church organists. His grandmother was a concert pianist and his mother, Jill Purce, inspired a revival of group chant, teaches Mongolian overtone chanting and spent four years working with the avant-garde German composer Karlheinz Stockhausen – which meant that from an early age Sheldrake was introduced to a whole world of unconventional music.

By the age of four he was playing classical piano, at seven he had moved on to playing New Orleans-style blues and boogie-woogie and by 15, he was studying minimalism and using Logic to program drums and beats.

He has composed music for a series of Samuel Beckett plays at the Young Vic and for Relax & Dream, a project which brought bringing soothing music and nature videos to children in hospital and hospices. Throughout his career, Sheldrake has been fascinated by sound collection and field-recordings.

In 2013, he gave a Tedx talk entitled ‘Interspecies Collaboration’ during which he created a symphony of sounds featuring the sun and British birds in collaboration with his own vocal improvisation. In 2017, he composed the soundtrack for ‘Moving Art’, a Netflix nature series in which filmmaker Louie Schwartzberg explores the beauty of oceans, forests, deserts and flowers.
