Chantal Michelle

ℎ− 2− ℎ− − 2 ℎ− (LP, Clear)

Label: Dinzu Artefacts

Format: LP, Clear

Genre: Experimental

Preorder: Releases April 12th 2024


Tip! *100 copies limited edition* 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.
