This Is You

Over the course of Room40’s history I am often struck by the provocative and individual statements that artists bring to the label. Recently I was pretty well flawed by This Is You by Perth artist Chris Cobilis. What Chris has made here, with collaborators Kenneth Goldsmith, Spektral Quartet and recording partner Steve Albini, is nothing short of otherworldly.

Based on a conceptual reading of Funniest Home Videos, the record is a head on collision of spoken word, extended string technique and lush sound. It’s a record that has profoundly dug into my mind’s ear in ways I did not expect. I couldn’t be more pleased to have the chance to share it with you.
