hey everyone, the april newness is here! courtesy of marina poleukhina, a moscow based composer and improviser. marina’s musical focus lies in composition and improvisation on various objects and the instability of sound; silence and silence as the sound; real life and real life as sound. amongst others she is inspired by ligeti, nono, feldman, waits, yoshihide, and hosseini.
her first album, simply titled lp1, is a collection of improvisations and compositions. it sounds kind of like: pulse flute flutter and trills. warble pops and muttering percussion. dropped cymbals. conversation in cries and rolls. natural space. quiet exploration of scraped vibrations. surface areas calculated. squeaks and hoarse voicings. thunder and roar, guttural friction and noise. everything at once. voice in the woods. quiet patience. strum rewards. go get it here.
