It is our honor today to announce the long-awaited new album from composer, performer and sound designer Lea Bertucci – ‘Resonant Field’ is coming July 19th to NNA Tapes. It’s been a little over a year since her critically-acclaimed full-length ‘Metal Aether’ made it’s debut, and Lea has been diligently busy across a wide array of musical platforms ever since. In the last year, she has toured the globe, debuted her composition Mass Of Dissolution for percussion trio Tigue (commissioned by the American Composers’ Forum), unveiled the piece Acoustic Shadows, a site-specific performance for brass ensemble inside the hollow body of a bridge in Koln, Germany, formed a new duo with Amirtha Kidambi, and so much more. Now, with ‘Resonant Field’, Lea returns to her exploration of site-specific acoustic phenomena. This new album is centered around recordings of alto saxophone played inside the cavernous concrete structure of the Marine A Grain Elevator, located at Silo City in Buffalo, New York. Lea was able to beautifully capture the haunting resonances that Silo City possesses, and brought them back to the studio to transform them into four stunning electro-acoustic compositions of saxophone, field recordings, tape manipulation, and additional collaborative instrumentation.
‘Resonant Field’ will be available on Special Edition Vinyl, featuring screen printed jackets containing an insert booklet featuring liner notes, drawings, photographs by the artist, plus schematics of the Marine A Grain Elevator silo. Presented in a limited edition of 400 copies packaged with a digital download coupon, along with a standard Digital edition.
★ The first 100 LP copies will be pressed on Translucent Smoke with Silver & Black Splatter vinyl – first come first served, no additional charge. The remainder of the edition will be pressed on black vinyl.
