Lola de la Mata - 'KOH - Klee - uh':
“The Copenhagen-based composer and violist fashions her fusions of synthesizers and strings on an accordingly monumental scale” Pitchfork “Slowly stringing disparate sounds together creating a wondrous constellation floating just above our headspace.” Crack “Copenhagen's Astrid Sonne weaves warmth into static soundscapes” Resident Advisor Today SA Recordings share the second single from their series The Hearing Experience with ‘How Far’ from Copenhagen-based composer, producer and viola player Astrid Sonne. In addition to this, the single series’ final artist lineup is announced as experimental trio Tara Clerkin Trio and what Vogue magazine describes as 'London's most stylish experimental sound artist' Damsel Elysium join the series along with Astrid Sonne and Lola de la Mata. Presenting intiutively graceful and precisely cut compositions that experiment with baroque approaches and improvised passages, Astrid’s work has seen praise from the likes of Pitchfork, Resident Advisor, Crack, DJ Mag, BBC and more. Her recent album outside of your lifetime, saw seamless transitions between oscillating waves and organ work as well as fierce waveforms through heated pulses, demonstrating how each individual piece Astrid creates possesses their own distinct character. Astrid’s new single, ‘How Far’, is a piece about listening to the inner voice. It aims to investigate an inner conversation with oneself; exploring its pace and time and the confusion and acceptance that comes with that. Aiming to create an intersection between an inside and an outside feeling, the track weaves in and out of redeemed and unredeemed harmonies, through breaths, noises and “half good recordings'', creating the feeling of listening, hearing and existing. Astrid on the track: “I wanted to unfold how sound can feel bigger on the inside than on the outside. My initial idea was to record it with other singers but in the process I figured that I had to use my own voice in order for me to create a personal and intimate space”. ‘How Far’ is the second sonic piece to be released from SA Recordings single series The Hearing Experience. The series is a collection of single releases from experimental artists exploring their relationship with the act of listening. The series will see contributions from the likes of Astrid Sonne, Tara Clerkin Trio, Lola de la Mata and Damsel Elysium and will be released monthly followed by a live event later on in the year curated by SA Recordings. The first single to be released from the series was, ‘KOH - Klee - uh’ from conceptual sound artist Lola de la Mata, an exploration of her experiences of having tinnitus. Now Astrid Sonne presents the next single ‘How Far’, diving into the inside feeling of the inner voice. Remaining singles from Tara Clerkin Trio and Damsel Elysium will arrive on June 7th and July 6th followed by a live event later on in the year.
