Naretha Williams

Melbourne musician Naretha Williams presents her first album Blak Mass on local label Heavy Machinery, who have released a string of musical words commissioned by Melbourne City Council and performed partly on the grand organ of the Town Hall. Williams’ LP is no exception, and combines the massive sound of the organ with synthesisers and electronics. Recorded live last spring, the songs were composed specifically for that setting and its history as an instrument meant to instil the public with fear and grandeur. This is Williams’ second project utilising the source code of the body by “analysing DNA sequences to create mathematical templates to work with in a musical context”. The LP was released last weekend.
