Barnett + Coloccia is the musical collaboration between Faith Coloccia (Mamiffer, Mára and recently vocals on Jóhann Jóhannsson’s ‘Mandy’ soundtrack) and Alex Barnett (Oakeater, Champagne Mirrors).
Each record begins the same, with a reunion of two good friends catching up on life changes, new ideas on existence, magical occurrences, and difficult experiences. The ideas in the reunions between Faith and Alex plant the conceptual seeds for each song. The music itself takes influence from cinematic soundtracks, 20th century classical and early electronic music.
The project is a true collaboration in the sense that the songs never end up as one person’s vision, rather they end up somewhere new, where the whole is a strange extension beyond the sum of the parts.
Recorded over three days by Nicholas Wilbur at Anacortes Unknown. Randall Dunn’s production helped to realise each song as a space in time event.
With two previous albums released by the Blackest Ever Black label, B+C continue their singular approach on SIGE with VLF their third outing into the unknown, which sees release on 22nd February 2019.
