280-year old organ meets drone on Sarah Davachi’s new album





Alongside a choir, string quartet, low woodwinds, and trombone quartet.

Sarah Davachi is releasing a new album, called Two Sisters, via her own Late Music imprint this September.

Davachi recorded the 2xLP record with a choir, string quartet, low woodwinds, and trombone quartet, while deploying her characteristic sine tones and electronic drones.

Notably, the album also includes a rare Italian tracker organ from 1742, and a carillon — a keyboard instrument made from large cast-iron bells.

“Timbral homogeneity within the instrumentation and instrumental register of each piece is of particular importance here, shifting the listener’s focus to the nuances of gradual variation as it happens texturally, microtonally, and acoustically,” she says of the new recordings.

Two Sisters follows her collaborative Mother of Pearl album with Sean McCann.
