Inspired by Freud’s Beyond the Pleasure Principle and feminist writer Adrienne Rich.

Clarice Jensen is releasing a new album, titled The Experience Of Repetition As Death, this April via FatCat sub-label 130701.

The Experience Of Repetition As Death takes its name from a line in Adrienne Rich’s 1971 poem A Valediction Forbidding Mourning, and explores themes of repetition found in Freud’s 1920 Beyond the Pleasure Principle essay.

The album was composed and performed entirely by Jensen, using nothing more than augmented cello recordings to create undulating drone-scapes.

The Experience Of Repetition As Death follows her 2019 Drone Studies EP, released via Geographic North.
