Davachi, Sarah - Gave In Rest

SKU 16-BING 137 CD
“Canadian composer Sarah Davachi creates deeply immersive, layered drones using analog and modular synthesizers as well as acoustic instruments such as strings, woodwinds, and pianos. Reminiscent of minimalist composers like Eliane Radigue and LaMonte Young, her works explore psychoacoustics through subtle variations on sparse harmonic structures. Davachi has worked at the National Music Centre in Calgary since 2007, where she has educated, developed content, and archived data pertaining to musical instruments and recording equipment.
Let Night Come on Bells End the Day, recorded using a Mellotron and an electronic organ, was released by Recital in 2018.
Gave in Rest, a more fully orchestrated work inspired by cathedrals and early music, appeared on Ba Da Bing later in the year.”-AllMusic

“Sarah Davachi has quickly risen in prominence since her first release five years ago, and Gave In Rest represents her highest artistic achievement. By infusing her compositional style within a predilection for medieval and Renaissance music, Davachi unearths a new realm of musical reverence, creating works both contemplative and beatific, eerie yet essentially human. Gave In Rest is a modern reading of early music, reforming sacred and secular sentiments to fit her purview and provide an exciting new way to hear the sounds that exist around us.
Davachi has mined a bottomless landscape where listeners can witness music’s participation in their solitudes. Gave In Rest lends a voice to her personal exploration with a firm, intuitive stance.“
