: Release Notes:
‘ ‘
,: Jessica Moss has been blossoming as a solo artist since the :,
: release of her acclaimed debut album Pools Of Light in spring :
:’ 2017. The violinist, composer and singer best known for her ‘:
,: fifteen-year tenure in political post-punk band Thee Silver Mt. :,
: Zion is newly ascendant as a soloist, captivating audiences with :
:’ gritty, warmly expressive electronic- and drone-inflected ‘:
,: post-classical Minimalism (and sometimes Maximalism), accented :,
: by a distinctive melodic sensibility that channels Klezmer, :
:’ Balkan and Middle Eastern tropes. Moss has played 80 shows in ‘:
,: the past year, including appearances at Big Ears, WSO New Music, :,
: Le Guess Who?, Zemlika and Supersonic, participation in multiple :
:’ editions of Basilica Hudson s 24-Hour Drone Fest, and a mix of ‘:
,: headlining dates and opening slots for the likes of Zu, :,
: BIG|BRAVE (on whose most recent album she also plays), and :
:’ labelmates Godspeed You! Black Emperor. ‘:
,: :,
: On Entanglement, her new and second album, Moss channels quantum :
:’ theory as a metaphor for creating energetic connections through ‘:
,: esoteric processes. Using violin (and occasionally, voice) as :,
: sound source, her compositions are set in motion like entangled :
:’ particles spinning, ricocheting, warping and stretching in ‘:
,: extra-dimensional space. Particles , the magnificent 22-minute :,
: opus on Side One, is a stunning transmission of cosmos-level :
:’ wonder, mystery and dread. Conjuring up sound as if from dark ‘:
,: energy, the piece gradually humanises the void as a circling :,
: string theme develops then retracts to a single note, stretches :
:’ space-time through a slowly developing drone, and clears a ‘:
,: haunted celestial expanse for Moss to introduce hushed, keening :,
: vocal lines that layer one upon the other. Fractals on Side :
:’ Two is a work in four parts that unspools through various ‘:
,: iterations of folk-inflected phrases, played on amplified :,
: violin, sampled in real-time, and redeployed in entwined :
:’ pairings, echoes and cascades. Here, Moss wields the violin ‘:
,: with a narrative intent perhaps more commonly associated with :,
: solo horn in the jazz tradition the power of the single :
:’ melodic line, the instrument as expressive analogue to human ‘:
,: speech and voice. :,
: :
:’ Profoundly informed by the experiences of traveling alone ‘:
,: playing in precarious spaces preserved by passionate subcultural :,
: communities, attempting fragile, intimate, abstract :
:’ transmissions through sound and performance Moss s new music ‘:
,: on Entanglement invokes the striving for :,
: communication/connection in isolation, the mysterious energies :
:’ that bind the singular and the universal, and the indomitably ‘:
,: terrestrial energies that bring micro-communities of people :,
: together to partake sustainably and attentively in human-scale :
:’ shared experiences. This is long-attention-span music that ‘:
,: wonderfully synthesises form and substance, spit and polish, :,
: austerity and lushness, expansiveness and intimacy. Entanglement :
:’ is a deeply felt and deeply rewarding work that testifies to ‘:
,: the unique stylistic and textural space Moss is carving out in :,
: the contemporary/New Music continuum. Thanks for listening. :
