Borned in 1951, Bandt has become a key figure across Australia’s music scenes for her work with sound sculptures, acoustic ecology, and invented instruments, alongside her academic work.
Soft and Fragile was recorded on custom-built bells and gongs in a series of “structured improvisations”, as well as sounds from glass, clay, and metal.
It follows the label’s reissue of Singing Dust’s self-titled album, in August.
