Grant Cutler: 'Self Portrait'

For Grant Cutler's forthcoming album, Self Portrait, the Brooklyn-based composer and electronic musician recorded artists improvising to delayed recordings of themselves. Described by his label as "an active re-imagining of the self," the result is as defined by ambient-music soundscapes as it is chamber-music composition.

During the track "Georgia," a plaintive piano is set adrift in a haze of reversed sounds and delay-heavy mallet percussion. Suspended in harmonic stasis, the architecture is in the texture and slow swells.
