Lea Bertucci

As a performer, Lea Bertucci has worked primarily with amplified woodwind instruments, creating enigmatic electro-acoustic interventions of the bass clarinet and saxophone in conjunction with tape collage and electronics. The New York City-based sound artist‘s newest release explores her work as a composer as she investigates extended acoustic resonance on classical instruments and their potential to powerfully occupy physical space. The two pieces on the new release, “All That is Solid Melts Into Air”, demonstrate the incredible amount of dynamic diversity that can be achieved by the phenomenon of vibrating metallic strings. The new work reveals a fresh voice in new music, while also championing the pioneers of the 20th century avant-garde- recalling Ligeti, Arvo Part, Tony Conrad, and George Crumb. “All That Is Solid Melts Into Air” shows us a different side of Bertucci’s repertoire – that of the writer and composer.
