Francis Plagne

Francis Plagne is a musician from Melbourne, Australia whose work swings between songwriting and a variety of other approaches, including group improvisation, instrumental abstraction and domestic musique concrète. He has been performing live regularly since 2005 and had released recordings on labels such as Albert's Basement, Black Truffle, Kye Records, Penultimate Press and his own Mould Museum. Alongside his solo work, he works with James Rushford and Joe Talia as Food Court, in a duo with Canadian sound artist crys cole and in various collaborative projects with the English ambient musician Andrew Chalk. Recent releases include Two Words with crys cole (Black Truffle), an album-length 'piece that brings together abstract texture and slow-motion song in a sonic space where genre cedes to the logic of dreams' and Moss Trumpet (Penultimate Press), a home-recorded stew of instrumental and environmental sounds layered to create a woozy, constantly shifting texture.
