The American synth whisperer gets meditative on her most beautiful record yet.

"This album is my expression of love and appreciation for electricity," Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith says of her new LP. The American artist primarily uses the Buchla Music Easel, whose mechanism is converting electricity into sound. Smith, who primarily uses the Buchla Music Easel, is one of the most prominent alchemists when it comes to turning electric pulses through wires and circuitry into gushing, burbling, naturalist sounds. She realized the magical nature of sound during the recording of The Mosaic Of Transformation. Practicing improvised movements every day, she tried to visualize frequencies with her body, creating what she calls a "visual language." On this album, this bodily exercise bleeds into her music, as her compositions become weightless, freeform clouds of sound.
