Cookie Brooklyn


About this artist...

Decade(s) active:

We say:

Cookie Brooklyn/Cookie Brooklyn & The Crumbs is one of the musical projects of
Mark Williams, a local guitarist and Curator/Director of CIRCUIT Artist Film and Video Aotearoa – an arts agency that supports New Zealand artists working in the moving image through distribution, critical review and research. He is also involved in Tapioca Dragon, and he often pops up in different combos at the Pyramid Club

You can but some Cookie Brooklyn (an archival project revisiting mid-90s home recording experiments and editing, revising, adding arrangements) here & some Cookie Brooklyn & The Crumbs here. These 1997-2001 home recordings drift more into the realm of experimental folk. Deconstructed melodic elements, spartan instrumentation (often just effected electric guitar and voice), fleeting clouds of buzzing dissonance, generous application of reverb, and some very detached and stream-of-consciousness-y murmurred and muttered vocals.
