False Echo is a semi-improvised, modern classical experiment featuring electric cello played through a haze of homemade effects and a standard cello played through no effects at all. The two instruments merge, separate, contradict and guide each other through a sonic trance-state that encompasses drone, melody, dissonance and white noise.
Jasmine Pender is a self taught electric cellist and noise connoisseur. Her unique cello noir style, rarely recognisable as a cello, conjures subway ghosts, washing machines and holy frequencies. Jasmine also performs solo as Rotten Bliss and with Jowe Head in 11th Hour Adventists.
Tim Bowen is a classically-trained cellist. He has played on various non-classical outfits, including such luminaries as chanteuse The Anchoress and disco-metal cult Chrome Hoof. Tim’s current projects are False Echo and folk-roots ensemble Seven Headed Raven.
