The Dundee native is known as a visual artist, but as of late, she has been drawn to music and voice as means of expression. Stark composed the seven songs on Time Together (Hues And Intensities) between 2017 and 2020. When crafting the album, she used vocal clips from tracks made during the UK’s second summer of love, an era she’s too young to remember that has nevertheless had a large impact on her practice. She’d go on to complete the tracks using a mix of vocal improvisation, synths, percussion, guitar feedback, samples and field recordings.
The end result fits in with STROOM’s well-defined aesthetic—the label’s recent releases include albums by Ben Bertrand, Dark Arts and Hessel Veldman.
