Immersion, the duo of Wire's Colin Newman and Malka Spigel, will release a new album, Nanocluster Vol. 1, which features four sets of collaborations with Tarwater, Stereolab's Laetitia Sadier, Ulrich Schnauss, and Scanner. The album is out September 4 via Newman and Spigel's swim ~ label.
The album was born out of performances at Nanocluster, a Brighton-based club night run by Spigel and Newman along with writer/broadcaster/DJ Graham Duff, and promoter Andy Rossiter. “It could have just been a series of performances.” says Newman. “But the fact that we had built the tracks in the studio for the performances means we had these recordings” adds Spigel. “I think the really interesting thing is how different everybody is, both as people and creatively.”
