RVNG Intl. Presents: Emily A. Sprague, Sign Libra & Dialect
We are delighted to present a special showcase from one of the most distinctive and influential record labels operating today, the Brooklyn-based RVNG Intl.
Emily A. Sprague is a synthesist, songwriter, and sound designer from the Catskill Mountains. Her work concerns the connectedness of all things – Memory and vision, ocean and mountains, question and answer, emotions and infinity. Sunshine, lizard, sea salt.
Through sound and poetry, Emily focuses intently on fleeting moments of crystalline clarity and meditates on expanded lifetimes of intricate meaning-making.
Sign Libra is the sigil under which Latvian composer and artist Agata Melnikova delivers her mystical, musical musings. Sea to Sea, Melnikova’s upcoming album on RVNG Intl, operates at the node between cerebral and celestial, the complex and magnificent systems of our immediate and greater cosmos arranged into exquisite and eccentric sound patterns.
Across the Sea to Sea’s nine songs, each dedicated to a different liquid expanse, Melnikova’s deft and dancerly arrangements articulate themes of abundance and peace, curiosity, bliss, mystery and mastery, all in Libran balance.
