A utility amongst the swallows is their music;
they use it to avoid collision.

John Cage,
36 MESOSTICS (1978)

Part I of III

Grounded in a book that collects a roll-of-film’s worth of co-dependent photographs and prose-poems by Hoagy Houghton and Dominic Jaeckle (36 EXPOSURES, forthcoming from Dostoyevsky Wannabe), SHIPPING FORECAST is a quilt of first- and second-hand reticulated reflections and ratiocinations—a ‘disembodied voice-over’ for a set of absent images, memories and other assorted totem poles—read and recorded by Diamanda La Berge Dramm (the anchor) and sunk in a veritable garden of noises, drones, field recordings and found sounds by Matthew Shaw (the ocean).


released March 2, 2021

Dominic J. Jaeckle is a writer, editor and broadcaster. Jaeckle curates and collates the irregular magazine Hotel and its adjacent projects (partisanhotel.co.uk), and runs a minor publisher, Tenement Press (tenementpress.com).


Diamanda La Berge Dramm grew up in Amsterdam, the Netherlands playing the violin since the age of four. Growing up among the leading figures of the Dutch classical, avant-garde and improvisation scene, her own concerts reflect all of these elements. In 2018 she was the first ever string soloist to win the Dutch Classical Talent Tour & Award. Diamanda studied at New England Conservatory and at the Royal Conservatory in the Hague. Recent performances include solo concerts with the Metropole Orchestra, and an Indonesia tour giving workshops and concerts. In 2020, Dramm was in residence at Musikfest Bremen as winner of the Deutschlandfunk Förderungspeis. Dramm is a founding member of Splendor, a collective of 50 artists in Amsterdam who co-run a working space and concert hall.


Matthew Shaw is a composer, author and artist; Shaw is currently working with Shirley Collins & Brian Catling on Crowlink; a sound installation and recording project featuring Collins’ recitation of English folk songs collected over seventy years, poetry from Catling and Shaw, and fragments of letters, diaries and prose from Virginia Woolf, Vanessa Bell and the Bloomsbury Group (see spoti.fi/3goBaI2). Shaw’s ATMOSPHERE OF MONA, a book of poetry and photography, was published by Annwyn House in 2020.
