Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith
The Mosaic Of Transformation
bright and buoyant, smith's latest is a marvel of morphing electronic textural arrangements, twinkling vocals and audio-somatic experiments.
a bright, sensorial glide through unbound wave phenomena, the record results from her fascination with electricity. smith embraced a daily practice of physical movement, passing electricity through her body and into motion, reflecting her audio practice, which sends currents through modular synthesizers and into the air through speakers. Smith’s signature textural curiosity pivots naturally into a proprioceptive study of melody and timbre. Airy organ and voice interweave with burbling Buchla-spawned harmonic bubbles. The album captures the joys of possessing a body, and the ability to manoeuvre that vessel in space by way of electricity to euphoric degrees. Fans of julia holter, mary lattimore and Julianna barwick will love this. “mystical synth-wrangler continues to create warm oceans of sound” 4/5 – the arts desk.
Ferg says: “I'd yet to be sold on her music until this one charmed the heck out of me! It's a record of twinkling synths, buoyant organs & comforting vocals that uplifts & reinvigorates every time it hits the deck.”
