Cavern of Anti-Matter – void beats / invocation trex

On 19th February Duophonic records present void beats / invocation trex – the debut album proper by Cavern of Anti-Matter, aka Stereolab mainman Tim Gane, in collaboration with original Stereolab drummer Joe Dilworth and synth wizard Holger Zapf.

“Cavern Of Anti-Matter are spectrum addicts, setting up tiny rhythmic cells and expanding on them in certain ways, splitting the melody and stretching out. The melodic movement is much slower due to the lack of words. At the moment, the Cavern sound is more what I want to do” says Tim Gane.

The album is an epic 72 minute journey featuring guest vocals from Bradford Cox (Deerhunter), Sonic Boom (Spacemen 3), and sound processing from Jan St. Werner (Mouse On Mars). It was preceded by limited edition vinyl releases on Grautag, Deep Distance, Peripheral Conserve and Associated Electronic Recordings.

Tim Gane’s band Stereolab are loved and revered by many, including Pharrell Williams, Flying Lotus, Pavement, !!! and Blur. Tim started his musical career as a purveyor of harsh noise in the early 80s under the alias Unkommuniti, releasing self-financed cassettes on Black Dwarf Wreckordings (which were recently anthologised by Vinyl On Demand).

Tim was a key member of McCarthy from 1985-1990. In 2007 he composed his first film soundtrack, La Vie D’Artiste, alongside longtime musical collaborator Sean O’Hagan (The High Llamas), and has recently contributed keyboards to the latest Deerhunter album, Fading Frontier.
