Farmacia901, Italy / F90117 / CDep / January 11, 2016
ringer CD in clamshell package / edition of 300

Pinkcourtesyphone reaches out and touches someone… in this case an international call with Dutch harpist extraordinaire, Gwyneth Wentink.

Wentink weaves her magic on the triple harp a replica of a harp from around 1600 made of 3 rows of strings instead of the more common single row. The effect is a multi-timbral coalescence of mood, a conversation between layers.

Pinkcourtesyphone thoughtfully folds, manipulates, and merges the gossamer resonances of the strolling fingers of Wentink under and over a hazy sonic shroud of worn romance and phobophobia.

This spiralling composition is created for endless heavy rotation/ background consumption for an anxious and medicated society prone to ambivalence.
