Penelope Trappes - Heavenly Spheres

Heavenly Spheres by Penelope Trappes

Tape hiss, disembodied voices and delicate piano figures

Some call it ‘sound art’, others a ‘work of evolution and deconstruction’, both perfectly apt descriptions for the more Ambient-leaning composition Trappes has been producing since her Mother's Blood remix album (in contrast to her song-driven, numerically titled albums). In saying that, Heavenly Spheres presents eight tracks that utilise her voice (as instrument) along with an upright piano and an old German reel-to-reel tape deck. Songwriting, but not as we know it.
