Geneva Skeen Layers Her Voice

And the results are consuming

The loop-based “multnomah_fall” by Geneva Skeen (aka Geneeeeves) employs vocals as instrument-like source material. Glottal sounds and incandescent moans take on drone-like roles in a slow-build, slow-burn recording that amasses density as it progresses. Dense as it gets, though, you can still hear deep inside it — past the wiry, wooly, bristling noise, past the eventual incursion of industrial rhythms — to the base materials on which it is all founded. It’s 15 minutes to be put on repeat.

Track originally posted for free download at Skeen is a Los Angeles”“based artist whose efforts also include a women’s chorus and active exhibition curation. More on her in a brief profile at More from Skeen at
