£30.00
  • Availability:

Chantal Michelle, an American experimental musician from New York, released this record in April 2024 on Dinzu Artefacts, an experimental label based in LA, in a limited edition of 4 copies.

Contains 4 contemporary songs from drone to viola, alto saxophone, and feedback. DL code included. This is a clear disc.

Chantal Michelle – composition, feedback, synthesis
Joanna Mattrey – viola
Lea Bertucci – alto saxophone 

Below is a commentary by the label.

"Chantal Michelle's latest work is an immersive composition in four movements, originally presented as a multi-channel installation but reworked for stereo. Like her previous work on Dinzu, Chantal Michelle exquisitely captures the raw and essential processes of the natural world, and here the song's title evokes the layered, granular texture of geological formations, as well as the collapse of love. It represents the behavior and trajectory of the sound of a composition conceptualized as a metaphor.

Michel, along with Joanna Matley (viola) and Lea Bertucci (alto saxophone), melodically express these textures. These melodies do not function as structural markers of the song, nor do they simply elaborate the underlying texture.

ℎ - 2 ℎ- 2 ℎ- is a standout achievement in Chantal Michelle's ever-growing body of work. "

Dinzu Artefacts:

"Chantal Michelle's latest work is an immersive composition across four movements, originally presented as a multi-channel installation and reworked for stereo. As with her previous release on Dinzu, Michelle exquisitely captures the raw, elemental processes of the natural world – here evoking the layered , grainy textures of geological formations. The track's titles both denote these geological processes and describe the composition's sonic behaviors and trajectories, conceptualized as a metaphor for the breakdown of love.

Michelle is joined by Joanna Mattrey (viola) and Lea Bertucci (alto saxophone), whose instruments chart melodic paths across these textures. These melodic figurations do not function as structural markers in the piece, nor do they merely elaborate the underlying texture; instead, they offer an alternate perspective of its dimensions: emerging as a kind of after-image of the seemingly static object, or the object's memory of its own dynamic state of becoming.

ℎ− 2− ℎ− − 2 ℎ− is a standout accomplishment in Chantal Michelle's ever-growing oeuvre."
