Around the turn of the century Chora’s trajectory to their astral plane became clear in Sheffield where, along with emerging kindred spirits, they represented a fresh triangulation of the northern free music family. Never wearing this Vibracathedral/Sunroof! influence on their sleeves, Chora have morphed from the premeditated electronic attacks of their early releases to the mushy tonal ur-states reached on their first European tour. Now residing in Peckham they have begun to work predominantly as a duo of Ben Morris and Rob Lye, but also in collaboration with: Pascal Nichols, Patrick Farmer, Kelly Jones and members of Helhesten & The Hunter Gracchus. Follow the rise and fall of their kaleidoscopic drone mantras that move through skeletal extended percussive techniques, wormhole found-sound manipulation, kitchen sink gamelan, and elephantine vocal swoops. Releases dropped in the past on labels such as: Singing Knives, Chocolate Monk, Sergent Massacre, Gold Soundz, Blackest Rainbow, Psykick Dancehall….Welcome to the Jungle.
