(**400 copies on clear vinyl for indie stores**) Pale Bloom finds Sarah Davachi coming full circle. After
abandoning the piano studies of her youth for a series of
albums utilizing everything from pipe and reed organs
to analog synthesizers, this prolific Los Angeles-based
composer returns to her first instrument for a radiant work
of quiet minimalism and poetic rumination.
Recorded at Berkeley, California’s famed Fantasy
Studios, Pale Bloom is comprised of two delicatelyarranged
sides. The first—a three-part suite where
Davachi’s piano acts as conjurer, beckoning Hammond
organ and stirring countertenor into a patiently unfolding
congress—recalls Eduard Artemiev’s majestic soundtrack
for Andrei Tarkovsky’s Solaris. “Perfumes I-III” employs
the harmonically rich music of Bach as a springboard for
abstract, solemn pieces that sound as haunted as they are
dreamlike.
While the first half of Pale Bloom showcases Davachi’s
latent Romanticism, the sidelong “If It Pleased Me To
Appear To You Wrapped In This Drapery” reveals the
Mills College graduate’s affinity for the work of avantgarde
composers La Monte Young and Eliane Radigue.
Softly vibrating strings rise and fall like complementary
exhalations of breath. As the fluctuating pitches create
overtones that pitter and pulse, the piece slowly and subtly
evolves—suggesting a well-tempered stillness, yet without
stasis.

Tracks:

1. Perfumes I
2. Perfumes II
3. Perfumes III
4. If It Pleased Me To Appear To You
Wrapped In This Drapery
