Product Description

Lea Bertucci composed and recorded A Visible Length Of Light during 2020, so the full experience of living through a pandemic and Trump’s final year in office is writ large in the grooves here. It is, in a way, a travelogue, reaching out westwards from New York. In the past, she has tended towards longer-form pieces, but here the album’s eleven tracks sit comfortably on two sides of vinyl. The seven longer pieces sit alongside four shorter “Refrains”, where Bertucci improvises her flute playing in response to the sounds outside her apartment. The sounds of the outside are a constant theme throughout the album with field recordings taken from Rio De Janeiro, California and Brooklyn’s Dead Horse Bay underpinning her compositions. On a couple of the tracks, “Threshes” and “Grasslands” these sounds sit at the forefront, but more frequently they sit under the shifting tones of Bertucci’s saxophone, clarinet and organ.
