Moor Mother’s new Clepsydra project is a soundscape for those experiencing creative blockages
Whenever Philadelphia’s Moor Mother brings a new project into the world, we’re paying attention, and the new release CLEPSYDRA has drawn us in since appearing on Bandcamp late last night.
Leaning more on the sound design / audio collage element of what the producer / arranger / vocalist / poet does, this 11-track project is atmospheric and entrancing, a sonorous sculpture layering abstract instrumental passages, distant voices, warm tones, and naturalistic found sounds and field recordings.
Moor Mother describes CLEPSYDRA as an experiential project intended to help those experiencing writers’ block.
A COLLECTION OF SOUNDS FOR WRITERS ( my intended experimental audience but it may be helpful to other creators ) AND CREATORS EXPERIENCING BLOCKAGES
FOR THOSE TRYING TO BREAKTHROUGH CREATIVE BLOCKS AND FOR THOSE HAVING TROUBLE DREAMING
WHAT DO YOU NEED:
PENCIL AND PAPER ( NO SCREENS )
A PLACE TO WRITE IF YOU ARE MOVED TO
GLASS OF WATER
MUST LISTEN WITH HEADPHONES
FIND A QUIET AND SOMEWHAT COMFORTABLE SPACE
ALLOW YOUR MIND TO WANDER
VISIT AS MANY PLACES AS POSSIBLE
THANK YOU FOR EXPERIMENTING
