SUGAR MOUNTAIN FESTIVAL,
DROOL introduces a new music series which offers an intimate exploration of the collaborative process between artists.
The audio-visual album created by Cara Stricker and John Kirby, LA Born keyboardist, producer and songwriter best known for his work as part of Sébastien Tellier, Blood Orange, Kindness and Rodriguez.
The 11 track Album is be available through custom cassettes and digital international release. Upon purchase of the custom cassette, an individualised love note allows access to download and view the 40-minute film and album at www.drooling.co.
A natural progression from the previous collaboration between Cara Stricker and John Kirby, ‘ Make Love to the World’, DROOL’s music seeks to examine sex as a concept of experiential utopia, rather than the form in which it exists in humanity, isolated.
It’s a dream-like space where you can experience a very open-minded way of living without the boundaries that our logical world has placed on us, exploring the conversation of universal consciousness, beyond sexism, toward sex, equality and unity.
Stricker and Kirby have lived, created and experienced their evolving art, performing a collaborative piece at New York Fashion Week and Sugar Mountain Festival in Australia and side shows alongside artists Connan Mockasin, Ariel Pink, Swans, and Kim Gordon.
DROOL is performed by Cara with a legion of female tranquility. Stricker performs with instrumentalists Madeline O’Moore, Margot, Kate Silver and Sonja Mauro. The sound lends itself to instinct and intuition, capturing the delicate sensual nature and expression of this project coming to be.
The Album launch in New York, took place amongst an instillation and performances at The Hole, Elvis Guest House, Babies alright, and Max Fish, with select performances across LA, and Aus.
