Transitory Tapes:

"Like flowers biding their time through the winter, some beautiful albums need long periods of dormancy before blooming into full expression. Mare Nectaris' "the comedy and the sourcery" is one such work, having been gestated for almost ten years before finally arriving on the Transitory Tapes label.

The piece is curious in that it was the artist's first ever recording project. Mare Nectaris (Gabriella Molina), who is better known for her mesmeric collage animations (see the captivating video for the album's single below for a taste), says that she was "exploring the jungle that dwells in my subconscious." Speaking on the experience she says, "I went through a crazy healing experience and had a shocking amount of energy, and then just got sucked into music. It consumed my will to do anything else."

This organic infatuation comes through in a special way on the record, whose gentle live-looped improvisations effortlessly capture an innocent spontaneity that many more practiced performers can struggle to achieve. Remembering the months in 2012 when the tracks were recorded, she says, “A lot of the album was created with friends sleeping in my bed while I would stay up really late playing to them as they slept.”

It's refreshing to hear the first strides of a seasoned maker stepping gently into a new medium and wielding those limitations with such fluency."
