Poppy Ackroyd - Pause
Vinyl LP £19.99
Third album from Poppy Ackroyd, the London-born, Brighton-based composer, pianist, and violinist. She not only plays her instruments conventionally, but employs drumsticks, e-bows, picks, and all five fingers on both hands to pluck and scrape them, creating unusual timbres and textures. She uses both the insides and outsides of her instruments, then manipulates and multi-tracks her sounds via a computer and a live microphone. Despite her very physical approach to composing and performing, the music she creates is intricate, delicate, and lyrical. With the exception of some economically layered field recordings, virtually all of the music she makes comes from her two instruments.
