Amlehn Fripp Jeanrenaud: Saudade

From 2008-2012, I worked on an album project with guitarist Robert Fripp (King Crimson), and cellist Joan Jeanrenaud (Kronos Quartet).

The project was to consist of a number of soundscapes with spoken word by myself. I wrote several texts which Joan responded to musically along with Robert's soundscapes. In the end, I decided the works functioned better as instrumentals without my voice.

You can hear the album here:
