[Eg0_198] tay_ploops : ta_rot

Tay_ploops is a solo project of multidisciplinary Canadian artist (painter, performer, puppeteer, musician) Jessica Gabriel. She initially conceived Ta_rot as a concept album of sad experimental songs to be released on 30 november 2018, for the international remembrance day for lost species.
Unexpected events of the cycle of life and death intervened in the genesis of this project and delayed it several times- but the wheel continues to turn and we are glad to finally to share this touching sonic testimony created with fragile materials.

ta_rot is sound collage born from death
…the moon…..the wheel of time…
gone again end again
love to shell
(Jessica Gabriel)
