Since the release of her sophomore album Life On Earth,
Seattle-based musician Jesy Fortino has become a civil
engineer. While studying at University of Washington to
pursue a wholly new life direction, she wrote and recorded
Tiny Viper’s Laughter.
Although it seems like a deviation from the singer-songwriter
albums Fortino released on Sub Pop, it continues
early works such as Empire Prism, and later instrumentals
such as her 2015 contribution to the Ambience series (Box
Bedroom Rebels) and her collaborations with Rafael Anton
Irisarri and Liz Harris (Mirrorring / Grouper).
Though previous works like Hands Across the Void and
Life On Earth are collections of songs, just underneath their
façade simmers a raw emotional expression that goes beyond
words. Laughter is the result of experiments deconstructing
pop tropes. Fortino takes inspiration from early
electronic pioneers like Florian Fricke of Popol Vuh, as well
as the raw experimentation of ’80s proto-industrial tape
culture. Additionally, she carries the seemingly disparate
influences of Slava Tsukerman’s Liquid Sky soundtrack and
Meredith Monk’s exercise in turning the human voice into
a spectral instrument. The apprehension that comes along
with attempting something new and challenging is captured
in the fragile structure of these compositions, which threaten
to fall apart almost as soon as they come together.
