Vanessa Rossetto lives in Austin, TX, one of two cities serving as the source material for her new LP, Exotic Exit. The other city is New York City, and the other material stems, of course, from her improvisational side, which centers around the creation of elaborate sound collages. According to a press release, Rossetto utilizes viola, violin, cello, dulcetina, and glockenspiel in order to create an effecting contrast and shroud over the sparse sounds of the aforementioned cities. In her own words: Ã¢Â€ÂœExotic Exit is a summary of my daily life and the environments that I passed through; traveling and remaining at home, walking, working, eating, talking and listening to music behind closed doors."
Exotic Exit is the latest LP by Austin's Vanessa Rossetto, and her second for Kye following 2010's groundbreaking Mineral Orange. The three new compositions that make up Exotic Exit were developed between 2010-2012 in both live performance and home studio settings. Mundane field recordings taken in Austin, TX and NYC are laced with viola, violin, cello, dulcetina and glockenspiel to create densely structured sound beds that smudge the line between Ferrari-esque audio travelogs and the hallucinatory sound processing of prime Asmus Tietchens. Exotic Exit arrives in a full color high gloss sleeve with design/layout by Matthew Revert, in an edition of 400 copies
