Underwolf Records presents a deep listening of Desmond Knight’s new album The Remains + new works for voice, saxophone, and electronics performed by Dollshot .
Desmond Knight is a composer and sound artist. An avid armchair naturalist, he has spent many a day and night in far flung regions, recording, collating and archiving all manner of sound for his personal audio library. Knight’s second album, The Remains, is a soundscape crafted of field recordings, found instruments, tape and hiss; a zone of liminal visions and subversive drones.
Dollshot is the collaboration between husband/wife Noah and Rosalie Kaplan. They perform original microtonal Romantic art songs as a duo and chamber band. Their eponymous debut was released in 2011 and featured originals and arrangements of songs by Schoenberg, Poulenc, and Ives. Their new album, Lalande, a future noir song cycle, will be released later this year.
