“There is an ancient saying that the sense of a vessel is not in its shell but in the void. So it is with this room. It is for those who come here to fill the void with what they find in their center of stillness.” – Dag Hammarskjold
Cellist Clarice Jensen, artistic director of the American Contemporary Music Ensemble (ACME), releasd her debut solo album "For this from that will be filled" worldwide on Miasmah Recordings on April 6, 2018.
Building on a long and romantic tradition of solo cello repertoire, Jensen expands and confuses the familiar sound of solo cello through the use of effects pedals, multi-tracking, and tape loops recorded at variable speeds.
The album includes music Jensen conceived of and wrote with Icelandic composer Jˇhann Jˇhannsson. Jensen collaborated and toured with Jˇhannsson from 2009 until his death in February 2018, often with her group ACME. The album also features music she has written for herself, and Michael Harrison’s Cello Constellations for multi-tracked cello and sine tones, written for Jensen, which meditates on long tones sustained on the acoustic cello among sine tones in an expansive experience of the harmonic series.
For this from that will be filled was originally conceived as a collaboration between Jensen and the artist Jonathan Turner as an audio-visual live performance which premiered at "The Kitchen" in New York City in 2017.
Before and after the concert Engelsharfen & Teufelsgeigen will be on the decks!
