Half Waif - Mythopoetics LP
ON NEW ALBUM MYTHOPOETICS, THE HUDSON VALLEY-BASED ARTIST BREAKS THE FAMILIAL PATTERNS HANDED DOWN TO HER, TRANSFORMING THIS SOURCE OF PAIN INTO SOMETHING BEARABLE, BEAUTIFUL AND CELEBRATORY. IT IS AN ESSENTIAL REMINDER THAT WE HAVE THE POWER TO SHAPE THE STORIES WE TELL AND THE MYTHS WE MAKE OF OUR LIVES.
To bring together the world of Mythopoetics, Rose once again collaborated with multi-instrumentalist, film composer and producer Zubin Hensler. The pair came together for a recording residency at Pulp Arts in Gainesville, Florida, with the intention of creating stripped-back recordings of old songs, solely focusing on Rose and her piano. However, the playground of the studio soon transformed the project into a texturally diverse and kaleidoscopic sonic universe.
