Félicia Atkinson’s New Tape is an “Imaginary Garden” for Anyone in Pain
'Echo' is out now on Boomkat Editions.
Félicia Atkinson has released Echo, an “imaginary garden” of music dedicated to anyone in pain or isolation.
Atkinson wrote the record while stationed with her husband and young child in La Becque, an artist residency, earlier this year.
The result is a ponderous mix of slow but searching keys, windswept sax, room recordings. You can hear every creak of Atkinson’s chair, her breath on the microphone, and the birds outside, plus the intimate electronic touches that she intended to mirror the solace she came to find. Her aim was to “provide a place for reflection for anyone in need.”
