Sarah Davachi is a composer steeped in the electronic music tradition. Not only did she study at electronic music hub Mills College, she completed post-grad programs at STEIM and Banff. The work on The Untuning Of The Sky reflects her pursuits. Every piece on this record is sculpted, carefully considered, a distillation even. Davachi makes a point to seek out rare and unique synthesizers and keyboard instruments, featuring sounds from ARP, Buchla, Serge and a Mellotron. She gets to know her instruments intimately, offering us concentrated synthesizer timbres slowly circling around each other, fragments of melodies occasionally bubbling above the surface.
Though she has been active in the Bay Area music scene, The Untuning of the Sky is Davachi’s first official release. Full Spectrum is very excited to be the first to bring you this unique voice in contemporary electronic music.
