A very surreal night, with me playing right before Egyptian Lover. I'm still amazed at what a sweet guy he was, and that he introduced himself to me as "Egypt".
Following the warm reception to Phoebe Kiddo’s debut EP, ‘Tripping On The Wake Of Goodbyes,’ Non Projects is proud to announce the 2011 RBMA alum’s startling full length debut, ‘Artefacts Of Broken Dreams.’

“I made my decisions based on dreams.”
Recorded during a period of constant motion (from Melbourne to San Francisco, Madrid, at RBMA, Los Angeles, and finally Berlin), Phoebe Kiddo’s ‘Artefacts Of Broken Dreams’ finds a striking balance beween movement and stasis. An album written across borrowed studios, by whatever means were at hand, ‘Artefacts’ is an extremely visceral annotation of the psyche shattering, heart breaks and breath taking experiences brought on by her travels. Employing synthesizers and drum machines to capture the inherent isolation of Phoebe’s inner world and continually changing outer world, ‘Artefacts’ hits from all levels. From the brutal meditationon minimalism of “Initiation,” to the deep symmetry and sonic pools of “Into Solitude”and the confident dancefloor stride of “When The Soul Lies Down.” The songs herein act as aural postcards of an artist both consciously and unconsciously in flux, tracing her every move in sound.

Obsessed with sound and its effects on consciousness since an early age, Phoebe Kiddo has been an expert in experimental electronic music for quite some time, referring to herself as an "avid consumer, occasional selector and meditator." Phoebe has kept a relatively low profile with hours passing into the night in various labs across the world. Time spent in Melbourne, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Madrid (as a 2011 RBMA entrant) and finally her current residence, Berlin, have all influenced the scope and feel of her deep and personally charged sound. Her physical beats demand attention with exacting finesse, while her spiraling and interlocking harmonic and melodic synth work draws one's heart and soul into the mix, only letting go once the music has stopped.
'Tripping On The Wake Of Goodbyes' is a free taste of what we can expect to hear from Phoebe in the near future.
