Preorder: Releases June 28th 2024


Sarah Hennies (b. 1979, Louisville, KY) is a composer and percussionist based in upstate New York whose work is concerned with a variety of musical, sociopolitical, and psychological issues including queer & trans identity, psychoacoustics, and the social and neurological conditions underlying creative thought. She is primarily a composer of acoustic chamber music, but is also active in improvisation, film, and performance art. She is the recipient of a 2019 Foundation for Contemporary Arts Grants to Artists Award and a 2016 fellowship in music/sound from the New York Foundation for the Arts. She is currently a Visiting Assistant Professor of Music at Bard College. Bodies of Water continues Hennies exploration of the beauty in subtlety and repetition. Both of the two works on this album are masterfully performed, rewarding ever deeper listening as the sounds unfold with clarity, simultaneously evocative, transformative, and at times fun, funny, and mysterious.
