Clarice Jensen signs to 130701
Brooklyn-based cellist Clarice Jensen has signed to our 130701 imprint. An amazing performer and versatile collaborator, Clarice has recorded/performed for a host of stellar artists including Björk, Max Richter, Jóhann Jóhannsson, Stars of the Lid, Joanna Newsom, Nico Muhly, Owen Pallett, Arcade Fire, Jónsi, Tyondai Braxton, Dirty Projectors, Blonde Redhead, Frightened Rabbit, Dustin O’Halloran, Beirut, and Nick Cave. As the artistic director of ACME (the American Contemporary Music Ensemble), she has helped bring to life some of the most revered works of modern classical music.
In her own music, Clarice’s distinctive compositional approach sees her improvising and layering her cello through shifting loops and a chain of electronic effects to open out a series of rich, pulsing, drone-based sound fields marked by a strong sense of restraint and an almost hallucinatory clarity.
Her sophomore album is due for release in Spring 2020 and Clarice will support A Winged Victory For The Sullen on their North American tour in March / April.
