With Voices & Allusions / Benidorm Hotel (split) Genot Centre presents a collaboration between UK-born Lee Chapman and Belgium-born Wim Dehaen. Their work, recorded in Burnley, Riga and Prague, is showcased on cassette, with gorgeous artwork by Yuliana Mendoza of Silence Effects.

In Voices, Lee Chapman presents a series of vocal studies. Embracing fragile media in form and composition, he sensitively stacks and manipulates his source material in real time. What results is a deeply personal lament to the aesthetics of the broken and decaying world around.
In Allusions, this organic approach is sustained, resulting in a delicate unity of fluttering, rich tones and trembling, wistful piano.

Wim Dehaen's Benidorm Hotel is no ordinary vacation resort. It is a grey place, a spectrally ambiguous, indecisive space. A desolate space with no visitors or inhabitants and only danger and anxiety behind every door. Throughout the piece, Dehaen takes the listener on a fully digital tour through the concrete skeleton of a post-tourism ruined construction.
