My guest for this episode, the fourth, is improviser Audrey Chen, whose work with voice, cello and analog electronics has been described by David Harrington of the Kronos Quartet as “possessing something extremely vital and vivid….”. Recent projects include duos with artists such as Phil Minton, Maria Chavez, Jean-Yves Evrard, Richard Scott, Flandrew Fleisenberg, John Bock, as well as duos BEAM SPLITTER and AFTERBURNER.
Like the previous episode, this interview was recorded in the corner of a large, empty gallery room, so there’s a lot of echo but it creates an intimate, somewhat fitting sonic environment.
The music you’ll hear throughout this episode comes exclusively from Audrey’s most recent collaboration with Richard Scott, their album Hiss and Viscera which is out now on the Sound Anatomy label.
