Lungs Dance

A 1 track downtempo single (5m 26s) — released October 11th 2019 on The Wormhole

Laura Agnusdei is an electroacoustic composer and saxophone player from Bologna. Classically trained, she also holds a Master in electronic music composition by The Institute of Sonology of The Hague. She is also the saxophonist of Italian cult psych-rock band Julie's Haircut.

"Lungs Dance" is the first track to be taken from her debut album "Laurisilva". The album is named after a hybrid habitat, where the acoustic dimension of wind instruments – explored both in their melodic and timbral possibilities – meshes with polymorphic electronic sounds. The high biodiversity of the record takes inspirations from Jon Hassell, Charles Mingus, Björk and Terry Riley as well as the "Fifth World Music" of Italian label Artetetra. It also reflects Laura's eclectic experience as a saxophone player and composer, ranging from psych rock to marching bands, from acousmatic composition to free improvisation.

While her saxophone is often the leading voice of the work, it occasionally shares the stage with the trumpet of contemporary music player Elisabeth Lusche, the swinging reeds of Italian jazz musician Giacomo Bertocchi and the ancient flutes of early music expert Thomas Reyna.
