Minnet (LP)

Edition of 100. This debut-LP is structured like a long-form piece split up into smaller parts, constructed with manipulated field recordings, synthesis experimentations, layered harmonies and textured sound design. One gets the sense the material journeys through a narrative in disarray, depicted through numerous undisclosed, ambiguous perspectives — there are parts that are melodic, radiant and vaguely warm, like suddenly having tuned in to an imprint of some long-forgotten person’s experiences, distorted by the current of time. At other times, you are presented cold, solitary iterations of synthesis, as if you were stranded within the dormant memory of a digital archive. 

A shift in workflow, overall tone and instrumentation from her earlier solo releases makes itself apparent on ‘Minnet’, a thoroughly cohesive piece-as-an-album that simultaneously manages to feel like a collection of diversified ideas, which makes for an engaging listen.
