ENTANGLEMENT BY JESSICA MOSS OUT NOW

EMOTIVE ELECTRO-ACOUSTIC MINIMALIST POST-CLASSICAL FROM THE MONTREAL VIOLINIST / COMPOSER ON HER SECOND FULL-LENGTH ALBUM FOR CONSTELLATION

Constellation
is proud to celebrate the release of Entanglement, Jessica Moss‘s second solo album. Drawing from her extensive history playing with Thee Silver Mt. Zion and Black Ox Orkestar, among many other projects, Entanglement showcases Moss’s refined musicianship, evident now more than ever in her solo work. Inspired by particle physics and the bonds between different entities, Entanglement, is both a gorgeous sonic offering that expands the borders of post-classical music and a testament to the connections that pervade among creative communities and the universe that contains them.

Moss will be touring extensively following the release of Entanglement, playing selections from the album accompanied by her finely crafted video work.

Jessica Moss’s beautiful video for “Fractals (Truth 4)” moves slowly through a tableau of gently shifting landscapes that overlay and dissolve one into the next in a subtle otherworldly progression.

Moss has stitched together footage shot during her extensive travels on tour over the past year, allowing lush forests, sparkling bodies of water, architectural and industrial landscapes to transfigure one another – at once familiar and peculiar, literal and surreal, perfectly accompanying the layers of processed violin that shift and build throughout this final movement of her four-part “Fractals” opus. In the song’s final minute, a chorus of voices emerges in tandem with a moment of visual clarity that then gives way to a closing fantasia of layered, colour-saturated images.

The video reveals Moss’s striking and thoughtful visual aesthetic – her visual art practice has long been an important part of her identity, and while this has always taken a back seat to her musical career, it’s wonderful to see Moss developing video works in tandem with her solo composition and performance. These works are also projected to stunning effect during certain passages of her live show and Moss is currently at work on further visual accompaniments to the Entanglement album that she’ll share in concert during her upcoming tours.
