aTelecine: A Cassette Tape Culture (Phase Two)

aTelecine is:

Founding Members: Sasha Grey + Pablo St. Francis

Additional Members: Anthony Djuan + Ian C

Many know Sasha Grey for her starring role in Steven Soderbergh's Girlfriend Experience or as Vince Chase's girlfriend on Entourage or as the starlet on the cover of the October 2010 issue of Playboy Magazine. Although Sasha has now released two limited edition full-length LPs and a 7" with her band aTelecine and has also worked with Current 93 lending her vocals to "Aleph at Hallucinatory Mountain", she is only beginning to be known for her music, and yet Sasha has always made music. Sasha was inspired to play music by groups such as Throbbing Gristle and KMFDM and has been recording music since she was 15 years old.

So what does aTelecine sound like? aTelecine take an experimental approach to making music in the form of sound collages which bring to mind artists such as Nurse With Wound and Coil branching out into a world of dark ambient and death-dub. Their music is ever evolving and mutating and it's only with each new album that they release that we are able to glimpse where they are heading.

These releases mark the first time any of the group's music has been made available digitally - in addition the band is preparing to release a new LP, The Falcon and the Pod in July. It is the first of a trilogy of albums which will be released over the next year or so on Pendu.
