ROCCHETTI/RIPARBELLI – ‘Three Quarter Tone Piano Pieces’ CS

SARAH DAVACHI – ‘August Harp’ CS
August Harp is Davachi’s second release, and is reflective of her ongoing exploration into the topography of spectrally immersive textures and aural environments. The compositions on this album consider notions of sustenance, shifting harmonic spectra, psychoacoustic derivation of artificial resultant tones, and interior movement within a semblance of stasis.
