Sophia Loizou - Chrysalis
This really is special - The debut album from Bristol’s very own Sophia Loizou.
Split into 6 parts (although the tape is the same on both sides so as not to spoil the flow of the tracks) Each piece showing the beauty in destruction as analog instruments are run through complex signal chains and, in parts very heavily processed, exposing previously hidden textures.
The whole half hour trip teases the ears, switching between moments of intense ferric distortion and vast expanses of serenity. This sounds to us like a lost cut of Phillip Glass’ Koyaanisqatsi soundtrack meets emptyset. An excellent and unique album exploring the beauty of destruction.
