pronounced vusstanya, bocctahne were a three piece on david khan’s krkrkrk label who existed between 1999 and late 2000, comprised of khan, megan gallacher and ed wilson.
emphasizing group dynamics & spontaneity, the trio combined lush, abstract vocal harmonies with a traditional blend of bass, guitar & piano-organ sounds. the resulting music had some song/lyric features – but, in general, bocctahne were happy to relax the more stringent requirements of songwriting in order to maximize space & atmosphere. mesmerizing & repetitive, their simple & melodic arrangements were more songlike sketches than songs proper – delicate, ephemeral & tantalizingly unresolved.rn- taken from krkrkrk’s website
