Dr. Norah Lorway originally hails from Vancouver, British Columbia. She now lives in Cornwall, United Kingdom, where she is a lecturer and researcher at Falmouth University, as well as a software creator, artificial intelligence explorer, and curator of the digital music label Xylem Records.

On her second release for Distant Bloom, Norah creates a delicate sound palette from radio samples, field recordings and code. These pieces are melancholy transmissions from an alternate spacetime continuum, coated in layers of hiss and static from interdimensional interference, full of strange emotion and yearning from another world just beyond our grasp, perhaps a kinder world than the one in which we find ourselves. Take a dive into these sonic portals and you just might rematerialize there.
