Blending cut-up poetry, ASMR and Erik Satie.
Multidisciplinary publishing platform Shelter Press is releasiong a new album by experimental composer and poet Félicia Atkinson called The Flower And The Vessel this July.
According to Shelter Press, Atkinson cites three French classical compositions as reference points on the album: Ravel’s L’enfant et les sortilèges, Debussy’s La Mer and Erik Satie’s Gymnopédies – influences that are translated as sparse piano lines appearing throughout the album.
Sunn O))) mastermind Stephen O’Malley, who has previously collaborated with Shelter Press as one half of KTL for the score for Gisèle Vienne’s dance piece The Pyre, joins Félicia Atkinson on the 19-minute album closer ‘Des Pierres’.
