The debut album by Berlin-based sound artist Felisha Ledesma, who has established the Sync Library (a library for renting electronic music equipment), will be released on the joint label of enmossed and psychic liberation in January 2020.

This work is composed using the synth "AMQR" that she produced.Combined with field recordings of hidden streams in the woods, sunny valleys and gravel roads, you'll get a deep hearing experience.

Includes two 20-minute electroacoustic flights. DL code included.

Originally composed for livestreaming events during the ongoing lockdown of 2020, Felisha Ledesma presents two extended pieces as a debut album, “Sweet Hour”. Ledesma's first full length release arrives after much experience in creating collaborative works with artists such as Isabella and Angelo Harmsworth, site-specific installations, and high-profile festival performances.

Both pieces were realized using a new software synthesizer, called “AMQR”, which Ledesma built for personal use in collaboration with Ess Mattisson. Stereo to many digitally-based compositions, a distinctly warm and organic palette pervades these recordings. is employed, engaging the listener to listen deeper; the pieces gracefully evolved with special attention to subtle shifts in stereo field and sonic coloration.

The time-of-day titles illustrate the two distinct moods transmitted: "7:00 AM" integrates field recordings and a hardware modular synthesizer, taking the listener through a psycho-acoustic journey exploring various nooks and crannies of subdued auditory rivulets: perhaps a hidden woodland brook, a sunny glen, a crunchy gravel walkway. "2:00 AM" harkens to the memories of nightclubs, opening with a synthesized arpeggio which could lead into a dancefloor-ready stomper. But instead, Ledesma steps back, allowing the arpeggio to develop into an similarlying ASMR-like timbral massage. The two compositions are united in a slightly melancholic grasping for connection; are they unfolding or are they unraveling? Ledesma does not answer the question outright, but instead finds joy in superposition and sublimation --while creating a space for the listener to inhabit, to live in, and to re-connect.

Felisha Ledesma is a multi-disciplinary artist currently based in Berlin, GER. In Portland, OR, Ledesma co-founded and directed numerous organizations focused on experimental sound and community engagement such as S1 (an artist-run space) and the Synth Library ( a lending library for electronic music equipment). Most recently Felisha co-founded Fors, creating "novel instruments that are elegant to use and adventurous in sound" in collaboration with Ess Mattisson and is studying sonic arts at Universität der Künste, Berlin.
