Sarah Davachi has announced Papers, a new book of essays as well as an EP called Five Cadences. According to a press release, Papers “positions historical and technological conclusions to face their philosophical underpinnings. Illuminating the mysteries of temperament and character in harmony, placing medievalism into the present, giving a narrative of studio recording as world making, and musing on her revered theories about art.” You can preorder the book here, and check out selections from Five Cadences below.
Davachi recorded Five Cadences in her home studio in April 2020 with only a Mellotron and tape echo. The EP also includes an excerpt from a live improvisation recorded on a large reed organ in 2007.
