Figures In Open Air
A supplement to the new studio album ‘Cantus, Descant’, Sarah Davachi offers almost three hours of live recordings and variations.
Featuring performances for pipe organ and solo electronics while on tour at Roter Salon in Berlin, Rockefeller Memorial Chapel in Chicago, the Museum of Jurassic Technology in Los Angeles, Église du Gesù in Montreal and the Lab in San Francisco, from 2018 - 19. As a composer and performer of electroacoustic music, Sarah Davachi’s work is concerned with the close intricacies of intimate aural space, utilizing extended durations and simple harmonic structures that emphasize subtle variations in texture, overtone complexity, psychoacoustic phenomena and temperament and intonation. Similarly informed by minimalist tenets of the 1960s and 1970s, baroque leanings toward slow-moving chordal suspensions and experimental production practices of the recording studio environment, in her sound is manifest an experience that lessens apprehension of consonance and dissonance in likeness of the familiar and the distant. Davachi is currently a doctoral candidate in musicology at UCLA - where she works on the aesthetic phenomenology of musical instruments and timbre in popular, experimental, and early music - and is based in Los Angeles, California. Two CD set housed in a 4-panel gatefold lancing pack, released on the artist’s own new label, Late Music.
