I went from a dancer to a painter, experimented with sound, went back to dance, continued experimenting with sound, started painting with light (making video). This is where I am now: using my body to capture sound and light and then building compositions from that.

Conduits of the hydrosphere took me a very long time to coalesce into a body of work that I felt I could explain properly. The philosophical text will hopefully be out in the next year. Until then, I hope that people will listen deeply and look at the artist book’s images, and maybe be curious enough to ask me questions.

Post doom romance is a collaborative project between myself and Mykel Boyd

Val Denham is an artist, poet, musician and transgender icon from Yorkshire, England.
Born in 1957, she has been creating her own universe since being a little boy.
She seems to have inspired a lot of people.
She has been labelled an “Outsider artist” in some quarters.
However, she describes herself as “A cleaning lady”

Val perfectly explains her modus operandi: “I employ a figurative and non-figurative semi surrealist
symbolism...my art is a kind of therapy...the internal map of my neuroses, severe Obsessive
Compulsive Disorder and Gender Dysphoria...analyse the surface of Tranart
(Val’s name for her own art and music) and you glimpse neurotic hieroglyphs trying to describe what
it is to be me.
Meanings are always masked in a kind of visual or musical code within my work. Even now I employ
obscuring patterns and imagery; though the reason to do so no longer exists...I no longer live a
double life suppressing my true nature, but the code still remains.”
Val has released many limited edition CDR albums, many with hand painted cover art that now
command very high prices to collectors. She has also released a box set of vinyl albums of her early
work for the German Vinyl-on-Demand label.
There are also 7 officially released albums on various labels. She is now releasing records on the
German Psychofon label who also release the work of her favourite band The Residents.

" For many years she has been collaborating with the Argentinian band Farmacia. She has performed live as the key member of The Death & Beauty Foundation. She has also performed under the guise of Silverstar Amoeba with her long standing guitarist Oli Novadnieks and with the Swiss group Black Sun Productions, as well as performing live in her own solo events." Vanessa Sinclair

She once did some record covers for Marc Almond, Throbbing Gristle, Psychic TV and a few others.
But she is still basically a cleaning lady.

MICHAEL ANDERSON aka DREKKA


Your favorite virtue ::
Patience and temperance. Two things I strive to master as I get older, with a mindfulness towards stoicism. I consider myself an optimistic nihilist ; assume the worst / hope for the best.

Your favorite qualities in a person ::
My favorite quality in a person is someone who is mindful of how one's actions and presence affects those around them. Be kind, patient, courteous, and don't take one's own shit out on those around them.

Your favorite occupation ::
Sounds artist, I love my work.

Your idea of happiness ::
Being present in the moment, without undo anxiety, distraction, or financial concern.

Your idea of misery ::
Loss of personal freedom, due to physical, mental, or political strife.

If not yourself, who you would like to be ::
I would still be myself, I would just not be this self.

Where would you like to live ::
In a small coastal town in northern New England, large house overlooking the sea.

Your favorite color ::
Black, but I am not sure that is a color. Is it all color or no color?

Your favorite flower ::
Black orchid, Scottish thistle

Your favorite prose authors ::
I don't read much, due to a pretty pronounced dyslexia. I do love the first few Frank Herbert "Dune" books and the novels of Leonard Cohen.

Your favorite poets ::
Leonard Cohen, but I prefer to listen to him read his work rather than read it for myself.

Your favorite heroes in fiction ::
Grendal, Andy Warhol, Super Grover

Your favorite painters ::
Swampdonkey, Andy Warhol, orthodox iconographers like Andrei Rublev

Your favorite composers ::
Simon Fisher Turner, Gordon Sharp, Joanna Brouk, Delia Derbyshire, Adam Parks, whoever composed the Byzantine chants, the honkyoku shakuhachi compositions of the Fuke sect, or the Liturgies of the Ethiopian Orthodox church

Your favorite heroes in real life ::
I do not have any heroes, as we are all simply people hopefully doing the best we can. But, some people who I respect greatly and find important to my life are Verity Lambert, Andrey Tarkovsky, Satyajit Ray, Abbas Kiarostami, Leonard Cohen, Robert Smith, Mark Hollis, Adam Parks, Yabby
You, King Tubby, Mark Trecka, Carrie Weaver, Victor and Elsa Anderson, Steven Stapleton... and of course, the KLF.

What character(s) in history do you most dislike ::
Those deluded by notions of the "noble sacrifice of war" and blind pride, those blinded by zenophobia in all it's masks; fascism, racism, classism, etc.

Your favorite food and drink ::
Assam black tea w/ milk and a tiny bit of sugar, espresso with a bit of cream, dark chocolate, ethiopian and Indian food

Your favorite names ::
The Doctor

Your pet peeve (something that easily annoys you) ::
Modern sound devices ; the shrill pings and beeps of cell phones, the sub bass from a bump trunk... again, mindful of how one's actions and presence affects those around them. Modern life has made people self absorbed and discourteous.

The change you most anticipate ::
Real time, person to person contact becoming less and less common as people merge with their online personas.

A gift of nature you would like to have ::
I am not sure the gifts of nature can be had by anyone, contrary to popular corporate belief systems. My favorite gifts of nature are dusk, the stillness of deep, cold winter nights, the sound of rain and thunder as heard from inside my house, watching fire burn, and engaging the waves as they roll along the shoreline.

How I would like to die ::
Painlessly in my sleep ; clear minded and a little over 100 years old.

What is your present state of mind ::
Low level, controllable anxiety. Mindly overwhelmed by life, in a good way. Hopeful for the future and deeply in love.

For what fault have you most toleration ::
Frustration

Your favorite motto ::
"If you are not five minutes early, you are ten minutes late." - Leonard Cohen
"Ecstacy under duress" - Test Dept.
