We witnessed an incredible performance by Agnel Obel last night at The Roundhouse featuring music from her new album Citizen of Glass. A big thank you to TT Club Member Pete for arranging the evening.
"Obel builds her songs through layers of piano, voice and cello, with an old German synthesizer created in 1929 called the Trautonium, which makes pitch by pressing a wire carrying electrical current against a metal plate. She had a Trautonium constructed for her in Berlin, acquired a harpsichord and celeste to write with, and used prepared piano (with cloth or clothespins between the strings) to create textures that oscillate between old and modern on Citizen of Glass.
