Weaving together improvisational use of electronic hardware, with a nurturing sense of harmonious curiosity, serene plateaus of sound patiently emerge from the musical practice of Sofie Birch

Spread the love

With a profound interest in the healing nature of sound and vibrations, her music contains the potential of opening channels to states of dream-like perception and alleviated presence. The ability to dissolve notions of temporal familiarity and gravitational orientation encapsulates the mind of the listener, allowing consciousness to branch out into an alchemical biosphere. Yet the unpredictable experimentation of her engagement with sound, surroundings, and field recordings makes each work a unique expression of imagination.

Through Danish label interCourse, Sofie Birch channels an album of inhabitant sound. A series of cuts that are dominant to a space, but still pregnant with non-invasive gentle care. Like a piece of ghost furniture suspended as an umbilical sphere around the stereo image. Although tiny eruptions of hysterical euphoria do occur, this is an album to soothe, gently turn winds, deepen your perspective on the language you convey, breathe with muscular stretch, to focus energy on that focal point in the middle of your personal perception. Our local sun behind closed eyelids in shimmering orange pink and white. A central focus in the channeling of the interCourse is what sonically resembles this perceptive tranquility.

“Holotropic means “moving towards wholeness”
Holotropica is my vision of a place of wholeness, serenity and clarity”

During the time your space is inhabited by the Holotropic calm, you get small fragmented verbal statements of the language used to conceive the album’s ethos, which is a witness report of the same parallel process in which we create our personal peace.

What would you let a newborn be subject to? an entity so new and fragile to the world, that almost all sound would feel too polluted by whatever noise this world contains. While creating this album, Sofie Birch has been pregnant and in transformation. This transformation, although (still) tied to the female sex, is universal and a process we each should undergo in order to love without the noise of self. To love like a mother.

New-Age therapists rejoice, your soundtrack is at hand.

通过丹麦厂牌interCourse,Sofie Birch引导了一张居民声音的专辑。一系列对空间起主导作用的切割,但仍然孕育着非侵入性的温柔关怀。就像一件幽灵家具,作为立体声图像周围的一个脐带球体而悬浮。虽然确实出现了微小的歇斯底里的兴奋爆发,但这是一张抚慰的专辑,轻轻地转风,加深你对你所传达的语言的看法,用肌肉的伸展来呼吸,将能量集中在你个人感知中间的那个焦点上。我们当地的太阳在闭上的眼皮后面,闪耀着橙色粉色和白色。在通道间的一个中心焦点是在声音上类似于这种感知的宁静。”Holotropic “的意思是 “走向完整”Holotropica是我对一个完整的、宁静的和清晰的地方的看法。
