The Untuning Of The Sky

Sarah Davachi

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.

Deeply saturated in warmth & finessed to a level of tonal perfection I don’t think many people ever achieve. Anti-Gravity Bunny
Pure, fluctuating synth notes cover a lush swarm of melodies. Then, the album softly shifts from one ambience to another, always maintaining a balance of spatiality, resonance and the sacred. Weird Canada
Awash with seriously blissed out & enveloping minimal tones. Seth Chrisman
