Extraction Music was a live, all day fundraiser with all proceeds going towards local refugee charities. It included performances from Yol, Kevin Sanders, Form Constants, Clive Henry, Marlo De Lara, Deej Dhariwal (Thought Forms), Murray Royston Ward, Seth Cook & Dominic Lash, Howlround and Rhodri Davies. It took place at the Chapter Arts Center in Cardiff on May 28, 2016.
In efforts to continue to raise money for the cause, this compilation was created. Tracks were donated by artists from event. Some are live recordings from the event itself. The base amount for donation is the suggested price. If you would like to give more, please do. Every little bit is much appreciated.
Many thanks to Ian Watson, Nic Finch, and all the volunteers for the event and fundraising activities.

“Extraction music contains a large measure of drone spiced with a helping of throbbing, psychedelic noise and other ingredients. It can be heavy, urgent and demanding but it is not, as a rule, harsh or aggressive. Instead the sound is enveloping, fluctuating – fully engaged. I’m sure the discerning listener could list influences from dub techno to austere modern composition to The Radiophonic Workshop but I’m painting with a broad brush for now and will leave the detail for future musicological arguments.
This music is created using mainly analogue electronics. The kit typically comprises vintage synths, their modern clones and homemade counterparts, other self assembled objects and daisy chains of effects pedals patched and looped through long suffering mixers. At any one time it is unlikely that all of it will be working properly.”
