The Asocial Telepathic Ensemble was initiated and curated by sound artist, composer, vocalist Alessandra Eramo and artist, writer and theorist Brandon LaBelle during the Covid-19 Lockdown in March 2021. It is an international collaborative work of sound culture that brings together eleven composers, sound artists, curators, writers, and performers who simultaneously switched on their recording devices on 21 March 2021 for 15 minutes in a globe spanning telepathic recording session, documenting their thoughts, habits or audio surroundings, in an attempt to connect with each other. — No editing was done.

The result is documenting a historic moment in the 21st century, offering a very intimate glimpse into the reality of self isolation which has been experienced globally. Each recording is a strong poetic approach to daily routine and deals with communicating with artificial voices, loneliness, yearning for travelling or being bored. But these artistic statements are also talking about hope, transforming tragedy into irony, accepting bodily and mental fragility during the pandemic and beyond.

The double cassette box is out on Corvo Records in July and can be preordered here:
