eD: Natasha Barrett Signs Isostasie

Wednesday, April 17, 2002 New releases

After a noticed participation on the compilation Miniatures concrètes and two autoproduced albums on her small label Nota Bene, Natasha Barrett presents her first CD on the empreintes DIGITALes label, the rich and scintillating Isostasie. A student of Jonty Harrison and Denis Smalley, strongly inspired by the many faces of the Norwegian environment, this brilliant composer offers in Isostasie wonderful acousmatic paintings. We can hear on this recording, amongst others, two of her prized compositions: Industrial Revelations was awarded First Prize at Musica Nova (1998), and The Utility of Space was awarded a First Prize at the 28th Bourges International Electroacoustic Music and Sonic Art Competition (2001).
