Julie Tippetts / Mark Wastell

Unraveling The Waterfall

Confront Recordings


Released: 22nd Jun 2018


Strikingly sparse and meditative percussive duo from esteemed vocalist Julie Tippetts and Mark Wastell.

Both equipped with a wealth of percussion but perfectly restrained, the pair are near-still, bright and clear at first, until the surface of their glistening sound begins to prickle and rush with an unseen current. Tippett's voice effortlessly matches the bellows of the Wastell’s shruti box, and its gentle drone highlights her natural vocal warmth. Intimate, explorative and intuitive, each note struck or sung is turned over gently, explored, and put back down to rest - like a rare find in a rock pool. Recorded live at Cafe OTO by James Dunn on Tuesday 17th of January 2017. Mixed by James Dunn. Mastered by Phil Julian.
