The New York City based sound and visual artist shares a video for a track from her forthcoming debut album

Rose Kallal has had an ongoing relationship with London label We Can Elude Control since 2010 when she released her first record, a 7" split with Karl O'Connor (aka Regis) and ex-Napalm Death drummer Mick Harris. Following another record featuring a remix by Robert Aiki Aubrey Lowe and a collaboration with Strange Attractor editor Mark Pilkington, Kallal is about to release her debut album.

Called Perseus, it’s a collection of six extended modular synth recordings, made at home in Brooklyn, New York. As well as audio analogue electronics, Kallal also works with 16mm film, and her performances often incorporate multiple projections, computer animation and video synthesis. Kallal has produced a video for the album track “Murzim”.

Perseus is released by We Can Elude Control on 20 October 2017
