Sarah Davachi’s mixtape

The Renaissance period and modern minimalism fuse in Sarah Davachi’s mixtape. And Verity Sharp presents folk songwriter Eliza Carthy’s solo record and a new European jazz trio.

The Renaissance period and modern minimalism combine in Sarah Davachi’s mixtape. Sarah is an electroacoustic composer and organist from Calgary, Canada with an interest in the delicate psychoacoustics of intimate aural spaces. Incorporating elements of drone and acoustic sources, with influences in minimalism and the Baroque, she has been described as a hybrid of Terry Riley and Eliane Radigue.

Also in the show, Verity Sharp presents folk songwriter Eliza Carthy’s solo album, described as a pilgrimage towards friendship from a dark place; Punkt.Vrt.Plastik are a newly formed European jazz trio featuring Kaja Draksler on piano, bassist Petter Eldh and Christian Lillinger on drums; and there’s music from Olivia Louvel’s audio-visual project Data Regina which explores the reigns of Mary, Queen of Scots and Elizabeth I.
