The third collaboration between Félicia Atkinson and Jefre Cantu-Ledesma—their first album produced together in the same studio: an electroacoustic, poetic, fluid and sensitive dialogue between the two experimentalists.
From its earliest utterances, experimental music has been particularly disposed to transnational and cross-cultural collaboration. Seeking the answer for a fundamental problem—how to transcend the boundaries of difference, distance, and time—it presents a means to find common ground and communicate through the elemental form of sound. Over the last 5 years, this precisely what the duo of Félicia Atkinson & Jefre Cantu-Ledesma has achieved, intertwining sublime sonorities across the geographic expanses between their respective homes in France and the United States. Their third album for Shelter Press, Un hiver en plein été [A winter in the middle of summer]—the first to have been largely recorded by Atkinson and Cantu-Ledesma together in the same space—distills a mesmerizing pallet of acoustic and electronic sources into an open discourse of radically poetic forms, offering glimpses of warmth and intimacy waiting in the post-covid world to come.
