Weird Walk presents: Leyline:
Featuring Fenella (Jane Weaver) & Peter Talisman
Linear trackways criss-cross this land. Ancient sites and places of deep mythic significance are connected and aligned. These ‘ley lines’ remain the ultimate in participatory landscape magic. Whether they are ceremonial paths, subtle energy channels or plain magical thinking, the power they hold is undeniable.
Our quest begins deep within the land of the St Michael Line. By following this numinous alignment, the touring musicians of Ley Line will perform a rite of reactivation: by day you are encouraged to seek out your own connections in the landscape, and by night join us for music, merriment and re-enchantment, a collective endeavour in the time of the individual.
Fenella operate in a shadowy, crepuscular world. The experimental ensemble led by Jane Weaver (and long term collaborators Raz Ullah and Pete Phillipson) return with hallucinogenic excursions into ambient textures and hypnagogic drones. Fenella make spirited melodic progressive pop music that pulsates with the same magnetism that fans of Jane Weaver's own The Silver Globe and Modern Kosmology have come to expect and hold closely.
“A lovely mix of early Autechre and classic Tangerine Dream… this is electronica as an enveloping tonal journey, chiming and pulsating with analogue life”
“A ruminative and rather beautiful thing. Boards Of Canada, Cluster and Craven Faults are among those whose influence can be felt throughout"
Support comes from mysterious duo Peter Talisman, who will be performing live for the first time. Although their widely celebrated prog-rock sound cultivated in the 1970s is still fundamental to the sonic palette, the groups modern incarnation (and on the 2021 re-release of 'Lord Of The Harvest') has been described as a blend of ”bottom-of-the-hyperpop-iceberg conceptronica" and ”proto-neuro-folk”
Follow the ley and follow the music, join us on this quest.
