The second album from composer/improviser/scientist Kassia Flux following the success of her debut "I Hear You". "Ergot in the Wine" is a beguiling collection of short songs,improvisations, field recordings, drones and strings bumping together in the unique style of this artist. ranging from memories of swimming to a post apocalyptic vision, a sound portrait of the village of Stiffkey to the morphing sounds of military helicopters.
Kassia Flux is an enigma - whose music is self-effacing yet ambitious, restless and hugely inventive.

Lyrics, composition, performance and production by Kassia Flux, unless otherwise specified in PDF booklet.

The over art for Ergot in the Wine is made from a set of scanning electron micrographs taken in the 1980s by Mr Raymond F Moss. They show the hair cells of the inner ear, with their stereocilia or ‘hairs’ that stick out. Soundwaves cause the hairs to bend, which is sensed by the cells and passed as a signal to the auditory nerve, enabling hearing.

The micrographs were captured on black and white large-format film, using a high-end scanning electron micrograph equipped with a ‘field emission’ electron gun. Kassia is herself an electron microscopist, but her role in these images was confined to restoring them to their former glory, using Adobe Phostoshop software (at Raymond’s request).
