by Scald + The Seer

Plunge 24:42
Plunge is based loosely on a Seer piece called "Bluebeard" I dipped my toes In the icy waters of your heart The muddy waters of the moat You built around this fortress With the heaviest bricks and mortar I dipped my toes In the boiling broth Cooking on the hob In a man-size cauldron Remember when we lived in a hut made of candy You kept me in a cage And waited for sometime to fatten me up While whispering sweet melodies to me Full of sugar and animal fat Everyday you checked my little finger The size of the smallest bone And fragile like a chicken shop’s I am dipping my toes In a pool of blood The blood I spat out As I pulled my teeth out One by one As I pulled my hair out And tided it into knots Braided like the main Of a prize winning mare You wore around your neck Like a string of pearls The insides of my guts. I am dipping my toes In the raging waves That slap me in the face As I slowly move ahead Far deep into the horizon With not a hope in hell And my pockets full of stones.


Scald + The Seer present: Plunge

Plunge is a side project from Scald, where Combat Recordings boss Stormfield explores working with live musicians and performers. Formed in 2014 with an album on Berlin's Holotone Music, Scald have also remixed Fret (Mick Harris), 2020 sees this new EP as their 2nd release on Combat.

Plunge is a long audiovisual performance exclusively streamed via Chaos Theory Music on 2100 GMT on 9th November. See and hear it at this link on Monday:

The mastered original audio and 2 remixes will be released after the show.

Created under lockdown, the prolonged hibernation allowed learning and application of new studio techniques and visual pipelines, with the aim of re-creating a virtual performance "stage" in which the music was performed. This EP involves improvisations from "mystical anarcho-feminist" The Seer on vocals, Stormfield on Pipe synth, Liam Noonan (Swarmm) on violin, Joe Zeitlin (Tehkla) on Cello and Eden Grey on piano. The project snowballed into an intense 24 minute video jungle-violin-ambient piece, reinforced with two brutal remixes from UKAEA and Force Majeure, to sit among the Combat catalogue.
