NY-based cellist/composer Clarice Jensen’s third LP, ‘Esthesis’ is a deep + gorgeous new work conceptually structured around the emotional and harmonic spectrum and the phenomenon of chromesthesia – a condition whereby sound involuntarily evokes an experience of colour, shape and movement.
Following up her critically-acclaimed 2020 LP ‘The experience of repetition as death’, ‘Esthesis’ sees Jensen expanding her oeuvre + introducing a wider instrumental range, including the piano of Timo Andres and the voices of Laura Lutzke, Francesca Federico and Emma Broughton. Mixed by Francesco Donadello, it is released a week ahead of a UK/EU tour supporting Dustin O’Halloran. Jensen has recorded + performed with a host of artists including Jóhann Jóhannsson, Max Richter, Nick Cave, Björk, Stars of the Lid, Dustin O’Halloran, Nico Muhly, Taylor Swift, Michael Stipe, the National + many others.
