Lyndsey Cockwell

LyndseyCockwellSongwriter and musician Lyndsey Cockwell, from Britain is currently residing in Germany’s ‘hotspot capital’ Berlin. Classical trained, by 16 she’d abandoned the piano and switched to producing pop melodies on a guitar. Musical progression followed with experiments in deconstructing sound and toying with ‘Musique concrète’; electroacoustic music that utilises as a compositional resource ‘acousmatic sound’.

During this time she was very much involved in the London music scene and worked alongside Charles Hayward (The Heat) for a stint and was also picked up by The Orb’s Alex Patterson who produced a version of her song ‘Tiny Snatch of Daylight’.

Continuing on with her tuneful edification, Lyndsey continued to conduct musical experimentation and also begun to play the bass guitar. Further inspired, by a Juana Molina concert, she purchased herself a loop station. This enabled he to find a perfect blend for live improvisations, pre-recorded sounds and songs.

Currently she’s involved in the solo project under her own name and is also part of accordion-acoustic driven duo ‘Wooden Dresses’ which has involved collaborations with Sheila Chipperfield (ex Elastica), Rae Spoon and Cindy Wonderful (Scream Club).
