How To Tell A Sound #3: Play Your Amp w/ Leila Bordreuil & Eve Essex

22 April 2019

Composer, cellist and improvisor Leila Bordreuil joins Eve Essex for a deep dive into instrumental and electronic improvisation, with a special focus on artists whose use of acoustic instruments is oriented towards amplified sound and feedback. Bordreuil premieres a piece from her forthcoming first solo LP Headflush, and pulls tracks from collaborators, as well as artists who resonate with her own practice. With music from Nate Wooley and Peter Evans, Marina Rosenfeld, Luke Stewart, and more, discussion touches on Bordreuil’s approach to electrified cello, her ongoing fascination with double bass, and straddling both institutional and DIY settings.
