The new founded label Kingdoms has already released two musicial statements that revolve around a mature, sometimes ambient, sometimes classical or jazzy sound. Already teasing us of what is to come, the label is still building its sound, embracing new facets with every release.
And so it does with the upcoming EP from Brooklyn-based composer, songwriter, producer and performer Léah Lazonick. She is something of a polymath, having composed and conducted orchestral and electronic scores for short films and commercials as well as being a classically trained pianist. She already performed on Black Light Smoke‘s ‘Morning Comes’ and Glory Club’s ‘Trigger Me Out’, both released on Scissor And Thread.
Here we are treated to three luscious works for piano and string quartet, written for a one-off performance at Studio OFF Interarts, an art gallery in Montreal. The piece was performed in a forest-like immersive environment, and was originally called ‘In a Forest (A Piece in Three Movements)’. Lazonick performed the piano parts along with a string quartet she had assembled for the performance/ recording.
