A few years ago, my friend Nadia traveled to Sweden for a couple of months and made a record while she was there. The result is Saint She, a work that she describes as being “based on the idea of secrets, the act of keeping them, and the ‘telephone’ or ‘whispering’ game many played as a child”. We exchanged many emails while she was over there and I was able to share in her excitement as she worked on it and a couple of months after she returned to Philadelphia and finished mixing it I had a chance to hear it and was – simply put – blown away. (I am usually very proud of my friends for what they create, but Saint She is in a galaxy all unto itself.) I was not only proud of Nadia when she first shared it with me…I was overcome by the joy of being friends with so talented a person. Today, I want to share her work with you. Fans of contemporary classical music or experimental electronic will hopefully find as much to love as I do in the 41-minute piece.
Listen or download it Saint She over at the Internet Archive where she is sharing it under the Creative Commons license.
I really hope you enjoy it.
