Sarah Hennies is releasing a new album on Coppice's label, Category of manifestation:. The album is entitled Gather & Release and will be out on in April. You can listen to excerpts from the album's two tracks above. The press release for Gather & Release is as follows:
Gather & Release is the result of years worth of composer Sarah Hennies’ exploration of the vibraphone in synthesis with her experiences of identity, obsession, anxiety, tension, grief, and loss.
Over the course of an hour, Hennies entangles highly focused percussion playing with field recordings, sine waves, signifiers from her personal & family history (including a 20+ year old recording of her grandfather reciting poetry), and bilateral stimulation, a tool for anxiety release and a major component of EMDR therapy (a branch of psychotherapy that focuses on relieving the patient of disturbing memories as a treatment for psychopathology).
The limited edition CD will come in hand-sewn packaging. You can find more information about Gather & Release, as well as pre-order it on the label website here.
