Laurel Halo's Tribute to Space, Pause and the Dynamics of Recording

With her classical mixtape for Q2Music

“Like her own music, Halo’s Mixtape features compositions that incorporate field recordings, early electronic instruments, bits of radio broadcasts and sampled sounds from various musical traditions to create otherworldly and often unsettling musical narratives. Included is music of early electronic music composer Vladimir Ussachevsky, influential Japanese composer and theorist Toru Takemitsu and the late opera pioneer Robert Ashley, who passed earlier this week and to whom Halo includes the following tribute:

‘Robert Ashley’s passing is very sad news. His music changed the way I think about space and pause in composition and the dynamics of recording. I made this mix a few weeks prior to its broadcast on Q2 Music and it is fitting that Purposeful Lady Slow Afternoon sets it off. I look forward to continued inspiration from his work.’”**
