Acclaimed experimentalists Lawrence English (AUS) and Lea Bertucci (NYC) travel the world on Chthonic, a shape-shifting ambient collaboration. The pair have impressive resumes. In the last five years alone, English has collaborated with William Basinski, Loscii and Merzbow, and Bertucci has, over a decade-plus, released numerous wide-ranging, innovative releases and presented her music at prestigious museums around the world (MOMA, Walker Museum, ReWire, Unsound). Here they branch out into new approaches (trans-hemispheric collaboration) and instruments (Bertucci plays cello, flute, violin and lap steel). The results are deeply compelling and rooted in vastness of geological scale and time. It’s all here – the emotion, the scale, the density, the fear, the wonder, the dirt. Chthonic is for everyone, but if you’re a head, you already know this is a special release. Get in quick while there’s enough wax to go around.
