The brand new album from artist and musician Dolphin Midwives (AKA Sage Fisher), Liminal Garden will be released collaboratively through Sounds et al and Beacon Sound. The album will be preceded by a single, Mirror, including a remix from Pye Corner Audio.

Using harp, voice, and electronic processing, Liminal Garden features 10 compositions, bringing to mind artists such as Mary Lattimore and Holly Herndon. It is a controlled and dynamic album that blends the organic with the digital, resulting in a body of work that fuses tranquility and rupture.

The album was recorded in early 2018 by Jason Powers (The Decemberists, Chromatics, Matthew Dear) at Type Foundry, and mastered by Rafael Anton Irisarri at Black Knoll Studio (Alva Noto, Ryuichi Sakamoto, Benoît Pioulard, Grouper, School of Seven Bells, Tycho). The artwork has been designed by Bijan Berahimi at FISK.

“…tracks that evolve from ambient Minimalism to something considerably more volatile.”
Jon Pareles, The New York Times

“…tingles the upper registers of human hearing: she plays the highest notes of her harp, processing and fracturing the results…”
The Guardian (’50 new artists for 2020′)

“…one of the most confident documents we’ve heard in quite some time, courageously embracing the artist’s vision, ironically pleasing without seeking to please.”
Richard Allen, A Closer Listen


released January 18, 2019

The album was recorded and mixed in Spring 2018 by Jason Powers at Type Foundry, and mastered by Rafael Anton Irisarri at Black Knoll. Cover artwork by Bijan Berahimi at FISK.
