Sarah Davachi Announces New Album 'Cantus, Descant'
It will arrive through her newly launched Late Music label
Published Jul 02, 2020Sarah Davachi has announced a new album as the first release on her newly launched label Late Music. The epic 17-track, 80-minute Cantus, Descant arrives September 18.
All 17 album tracks were composed, recorded and performed by Davachi, and two even feature her vocals. You can watch a video for opener "Stations II" below.
"The pervading affect on the album is one that gives reverence to the suspension, the epoché, a space where we welcome and attempt to reconcile impermanence," Davachi explained in a statement. "It is an opportunity to go inside — oneself, one's sound — in order to simultaneously commune with our comforts and that which we mourn, perhaps not unlike the function of a hymn."
Cantus, Descant will arrive digitally, as well as via a 2-LP set and a 2-CD package.
Earlier this year, Davachi contributed a song to Stuart Hyatt's Ultrasonic compilation.
