Product information

We Came For Your Riches is Bedroom Community through and through. Having been part of the broader BedCom team for a few years, Valgeir Sigurdsson is thrilled to present Robinson's newest work for 2020. A new album is preceded by this stunning new single, anchored by a throbbing electronic pulse, drenched in monolithic, sombre harmony and a writhing, soaring improvised vocal performance.

Harvesting sounds from a range sources including field recordings, medical machines that monitor the human body, traditional instruments and synthesisers, often melted electronically. The result is an unsettling paradox with sounds constantly on the edge of recognition. Each piece references a specific socio-political issue ranging from colonialism to neo-liberalism to climate change and the impending singularity of humans and machines.

Tilman acknowledges the The Wurundjeri people of the Kulin Nation, as the first inhabitants and traditional custodians of the land where he lives, learns and works. He acknowledges Elders past, present and emerging and their ongoing connection to the country. Sovereignty was never ceded. This music is a visceral aural acknowledgement of this ongoing situation in Australia, whether the tumultuous unfolding of colonial history, or the more terrifying reality that is Australia's battle with the elements as our world succumbs to man-made climate change - We Came For Your Riches is an exercise in catharsis, reflection and hope.
