Softliness…

Very excited to announce that this charmed aural component of last years “Hotelevisions” installation is now a physical audio art element!softgoalscassette3_smSoft Goals was recorded live by the artist herself, in performance at “Hotelevisions”, a group art installation at the Westin Bonaventure Hotel (room #1157) in Los Angeles, CA. 10.22.2016.
14724479_10210911217846649_664489225005394915_nFrom her self-styled bed fort, Teasips casually captures and processes everything from the intimate crackling of a melting bucket of courtesy ice, to the classes surrounding movements in air conditioned ambience.
Her thoughtful employment of modular synth and subtle flute expressions guide the energy in the room.

Angela Frances Wilson (aka:  Teasips) is a Los Angeles-based composer/improviser. Her outpouring of work; be it solo, as one-half of the duo Electric Sound Bath, or any of her collaborative endeavors spread electronic and acoustic forms with a vibrant fluidity, sprinkled in new mystic energies.

50 minute cassette (white shell) / j-card + printed vellum insert / liner notes by Chelsea Rector.
