The Workman's Club, Saturday 19th January 2019

From When I Wake… is Kathryn Joseph's latest release. It is is a compellingly soulful set that suggests Aldous Harding, Joana Newsom, Talk Talk and Kate Bush as kindred spirits and documents both life's traumas and their resolutions.

These include Joseph's niece's grave illness a few years ago (via the poignant ode to survival that is There Is No God But You) and the grief she experienced after the split from her partner, which hit her with such overwhelming force during an A Mote Of Dust gig, but which gives way to thankfulness for their reunion (on the title track, Weight and Tell My Lover).

“This record mostly came from the year of my feeling the most broken hearted and miserable,” admits Joseph, “but it is a weird circle shape, because by the time the last songs on it were written I was back with the human I love and still am. Most of the songs are my trying to turn the black hell feeling into something else, even when it didn't feel like anything good was going to come from it. All of them are again my weird, creepy way of telling the truth.”

Documenting Jazz

DIT Conservatory of Music and Drama

The first jazz conference in Ireland will take place at the Dublin Institute of Technology, Conservatory of Music and Drama, Rathmines. Since it was first named, jazz has been a phenomenon of mass-distributed sound, word and image. While its vernacular origins and emphasis on improvisation give primacy to live performance, the consumption of jazz is largely mediated through documentation of some form. This process of documentation has arguably been just as important as, and in some ways more important, than ‘the music itself’, shaping its reception and spread throughout the world. In
