ORA ISO: Bathcat LP


Ora Iso "Bathcat" LP (Ba Da Bing)

Ora Iso’s pieces begin in abstraction, encounter semblances of melody, then disintegrate into fragments. It all comes together as a glorious noise, and Bathcat, the duo’s first album, captures the essence of their nature. The group formed with a shared affinity for challenging pieces. Kathleen Malay, born in Indonesia and a recent transplant to New York via Australia, is a classically trained pianist who found her calling once she met Jason Kudo, a guitarist best known for his work in Modra. Bathcat was recorded with the deft influence of Lary Seven, a fixture on the New York experimental scene since 1970, who has worked with Tony Conrad, Foetus and Jarboe.
