Fullmoon

Out May 18th on Relative Pitch Records

Coming out on the experimental imprint Relative Pitch Records, Richards explores the intersection between electronic and acoustic manipulation, reaching new depths in the process of recording improvised music. Richard’s output until now has mostly existed in the supportive role, contributing to recordings and/or live performances with the likes of Henry ThreadgillJohn ZornAnthony Braxton and Butch Morris to performing alongside household names like Kanye West and The Pixies. Richards is completely unplugged on this record, but paired with masterful live-sampling by Dino J.A. Deane, Fullmoon becomes much more than a record of solo improvisation; this is our first glimpse at Richards’ ability to craft a complete world of her own, and it’s really exciting. If you like to explore ambitious new ways of transmitting musical ideas, you’ll enjoy the universe that Richards’ has dreamed up on Fullmoon.
