Vanessa Rossetto is a composer and painter living in Austin, Texas. She uses primarily chamber instrumentation, field recordings, electronics and a wide array of different objects, exploring them through extended and traditional techniques. In 2008, she launched her own CD-R label, Music Appreciation, and through this imprint has released four solo albums: Misafridal, Imperial Brick, Whoreson in the Wilderness and the award-winning Dogs in English Porcelain. Her most recent release, the PDD-NOS (Period Tapes) cassette was described by Byron Coley in The Wire as sounding like 'being under attack from slow-moving dune worms'. Mineral Orange presents four new works, each showcasing Vanessa's deep commitment to abstract sound situations. These pieces exist as precision-edited travelogs of Vanessa's questing. Local sounds, audio verite and overlayed string interludes are scrambled into surreal matrices of time, place and event. Mineral Orange was recorded and produced in Austin, Texas in 2010, with additional production by Steven Flato and mastering by Jason Lescalleet at Glistening Labs, ME.
