Clarice Jensen | "The Experience Of Repetition As Death" | FatCat Records | 2020   Clarice Jensen | "The Experience Of Repetition As Death" | FatCat Records | 2020

Clarice Jensen es una compositora y violonchelista con sede en Brooklyn, Nueva York, es una activa colaboradora que ha grabado y tocado con artistas como Jóhann Jóhannsson, Max Richter, Björk, Stars of the Lid, Dustin O’Halloran (A Winged Victory For The Sullen), Joanna Newsom, Nico Muhly and Nick Cave, entre otros.
Este nuevo album y tercero a la fecha e publica por el subsello FatCat, 130701, nos muestra cinco bellas piezas neoclásicas donde el chelo predominante que se traslapa con espesas capas procesadas electrónicamente que se envuelven en interminables loops creando una atmósfera penetrante.
Uno de los aspectos que evocan el título de este LP, es la agonía de la madre de Clarice Jensen y poco después de su fallecimiento. La repetición se refiere a las tareas propias de la cotidianidad como hacer compras, pagar las cuentas, las visitas al médico y al hospital.
La música se expande y se contrae a través de loops de distintas capas que se superponen y producen la sensación de un viaje a las profundidades de la muerte y de la vida, alfa y omega, principio y fin. Lo anterior, no puedo dejar de ligarlo con la emergencia sanitaria que está viviendo en el mundo. Sin embargo, la bella música de Clarice Jensen me deja con un atisbo de esperanza.

Clarice Jensen is a Brooklyn, New York-based composer and cellist, and she is an active collaborator who has recorded or performed with artists such as Jóhann Jóhannsson, Max Richter, Björk, Stars of the Lid, Dustin O 'Halloran (A Winged Victory For The Sullen), Joanna Newsom, Nico Muhly and Nick Cave, among others.
This new album and third to date, released by FatCat sublabel, 130701, displays five beautiful neoclassical pieces where the predominant cello overlaps with thick electronically processed layers that are wrapped in endless loops creating a penetrating atmosphere.
One of the aspects that the title of this LP evokes is the agony of Clarice Jensen's mother and shortly after her death. Repetition refers to everyday tasks such as shopping, paying bills, visits to the doctor and hospital.
The music expands and contracts through loops of different layers that overlap and produce the feeling of a journey to the depths of death and life, alpha and omega, beginning and end. The above, I can’t stop linking it with the world’s health emergency that we are living. However, Clarice Jensen's beautiful music leaves me with a glimpse of hope.
