Emily A. Sprague’s newly sequenced and mastered albums Water Memory and Mount Vision are out today, along with a new self-directed video for “Piano 2.” Through sound and poetry, Emily’s craft focuses on fleeting moments of crystalline clarity and meditates on expanded lifetimes of intricate meaning-making.
As much about the presence in youthful experimentation as the permanence of transition and maturation, Water Memory, originally released in 2017, is the first long-form instrumental music Emily ever channeled. Mount Vision, originally released in 2018, was conceived in a smaller window of time than its predecessor, the pure residue of intense emotional build up during a period of self-healing and unguarded reflection.
Previously issued as small editions of self-released cassettes, Emily’s two albums have been resequenced and mastered by Taylor Deupree in double LP and CD editions, each including previously unheard tracks. Emily celebrates the release of Water Memory / Mount Vision tonight at the Getty Museum in Los Angeles, sharing a bill with Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith and Sean Hellfritsch.
