Lyra Pramuk Unveils Debut Album, ‘Fountain,’ on Bedroom Community
'Fountain' LP is out on March 20.
Pramuk, an American operatically-trained vocalist and electronic musician known for her work with musical collaborators such as Holly Herndon and Colin Self, created the entire album using her own voice, shaping it with electronics. Its title is derived from her family name, Pramuk, which translates from Czech as “well spring” or “fountain.”
The Iceland label describes the album as “an emotional, sensual, and devotional journey.” Often wordless, the songs “evoke a new wholeness sustained by the ritual force of drowning, immersion, cleansing, and bathing,” which is also referred to in the album artwork by visual artist Donna Huanca.
Fountain’s completion culminated in the live premiere of the album material at Unsound Festival in Krakow in 2019, where she performed through a multi-channel array designed by Ben Frost, opening for Sunn O))) and Roly Porter. A closer collaboration with Frost on a soundtrack for a new film project will be announced later in 2020.
