AN ORCHARD OF ECHOES BY DIRTY CHURCHES
Music composed by Jesse Gelaznik art performance by Rachel Blackwell
I composed and recorded this music along with improv cello by Anna Callner based on material from 'An Orchard of Echoes' a performance art piece commissioned by Soho20 Gallery for their 5th annual Savoir-Faire performance series. I performed a synthesizer version of this set live with Rachel Blackwell performing as the character SHE (a mythological harvest ritual goddess). After I recorded the basic structure of the piece with Liz Pulos on viola, I had my friend Robert Boston record samples and had Alfra Martini do some vocal overdubs.This EP was mixed and mastered by the wonderful Justin Miller.
