Peder Mannerfelt Produktion will release Msuic EP by Klara Lewis on November 10

Following on from her highly acclaimed ‘Ett’ lp on Editions Mego Klara Lewis presents 4 new works which further her signature explorations of field recordings, electronics, rhythm, sound and atmosphere. Here Lewis exemplifies her uncanny ability to harness the world outside in order to reconstruct and re-present this as amorphous musical matter. These 4 new tracks exude a certain ambiguity where standard signposts such as rhythm, ambience, texture, light and dark remain as elusive as they are present. Whilst bypassing passive or photographic representation of the source material these works withhold a strong emotional quality resulting in a confident and at times brutal musical manifestation. As suggested by the title, Msuic resides in a zone at once familiar and slightly off kilter, a world of Lewis’ devising in which the listener is warmly encouraged to enter and explore. Msuic is another superb collection of music as fantastic matter.
