Sarah Davachi releases piano-led album 'Pale Bloom'
Canadian-born, LA-based sonic adventurer Sarah Davachi has uses both acoustic instrumentation and electronics to create dreamlike ambient compositions. After a series of albums delving into all kinds of instruments, from pipe and reed organs to analog synthesizer, she has now released her new, piano-led album 'Pale Bloom', with which she returns to the first instrument she learned to play in her youth.
'Pale Bloom' is comprised of two sides and displays both Davachi's latent Romanticism and her affinity with avant-garde composers La Monte Young and Eliane Radigue. You can stream the full album below.
Sarah Davachi's return to Le Guess Who? in 2019 is curated by Jenny Hval, and will be a special performance with church organ and electronics. Also performing at the festival are Nivhek (Grouper's Liz Harris), Robert Aiki Aubrey Lowe, Felicia Atkinson, Jenny Hval's The Practice of Love, Asha Puthli, Mary Lattimore, Michele Marcure, Rabih Beaini, and many more.
