Following last year’s Acoustic Shadows, Lea Bertucci is gearing up to release a new album this Spring. Entitled A Visible Length Of Light, the album features field recordings made in places like Rio de Janeiro, the California coast, and Dead Horse Bay and saw the New York-based composer, performer and sound designer use a number of instruments, including bass clarinet, alto sax, manipulated tape, organ and a venu wooden flute.
According to the press release, A Visible Length Of Light “channel[s] temperaments of dislocation and wanderlust, filtered through impressions of distinctly American landscapes – coasts, cities, prairie – and the sonic material of everyday experience, defamiliarized by crisis.”
The album marks the relaunch of Bertucci’s own Cibachrome Editions and it promises to be “one of her most pointedly melodic, harmonically rich, and structurally distinct efforts to date.”
‘On Opposite Sides of Sleep’ serves as the first taste from the album and is offered with an accompanying film by Fern Silva. Here it is.
A Visible Length Of Light is out on April 16th through Cibachrome Editions.
