Dogs in English Porcelain (Vanessa Rossetto's fourth solo album on the label) is a composition for electronics, field recordings, viola, violin, cello and acoustic turntable. It was created with many layers of very quiet elements that advance and recede, forming the episodic structure of the piece. The overlapping of electronic and environmental sounds with extended technique and traditional playing disturbs the boundaries separating the natural and artificial, the intentional and the incidental. The counterpoint and rapid changes between sections add to the nonlinear feel, keeping the listener in a state of acute alertness. In this world, the chamber becomes the meadow but also the alley and the suburban street. Vanessa Rossetto is an American composer, improviser and painter. She uses primarily chamber instrumentation, field recordings, electronics and a wide array of different objects exploring them through extended and traditional techniques and other methods of her own devising. She has recorded and released two full-length CD-Rs as the Mighty Acts of God on the labels Ruralfaune and MYMWLY, as well as appearing on numerous compilation tracks and collaborative releases with Bright Duplex, Pulga, Wondrous Horse and others, and has launched her own CD-R label, Music Appreciation. Through this imprint she has released four solo albums: Misafridal, Imperial Brick, Whoreson in the Wilderness and Dogs in English Porcelain. She resides in Austin, Texas.
