Album Review

Sharkiface – Climax in a Process

majesty   5/24/2023   A Library

A 1999 Bay Area transplant, this “sampling siren and static witch” received her MFA in Electronic Music from Mills College. Layering live samples, tape delays, custom devices, textures and rhythms, Angela Edwards often uses an extremely rare and tactile synth, sampler, and manipulated voice to “coax oceans of glass from tiny metal boxes.” This debut solo album elucidates “what happens when a moveable feast meets a gobbleable object? An ocean of gray rises, the music growing ever darker, richer, deeper, pouring toward you ever swifter.” CIAP explores “not only the metaphorical values of a full moon, but also the loss of loved ones.” She can be found here using the musical value of a birthdate to create arrangements, altogether developing a narrative either sonically, symbolically, or spiritually; the themes of “memories, shadow work, incantations, processing trauma, and redemption. Noord, tranoe, and larynx trace the anchorline beneath it all to sunless depths where an unblinking hunger hunts all, without rest. As her waveforms roil about your mind, you begin to realize that if you can hear desire, desire can hear you.”
