C. Lavender “Transient Seclusion”

When I think about the concepts of sonic agency and building worlds through sound, C. Lavender is one of the first artists that come to mind. Her work is a conduit that takes listeners into new, uncharted zones. Whether that journey is introspective or moving through time and space, she is a guide. Transient Seclusion has a narrative flow that whisks you away through artificial landscapes filled with towering synth drones and soothing recordings of a gentle rain shower. Deep in the crevices, thick bass forms emerge like a long-slumbering giant, forgotten by time, awakening to a new world. Listening with focus and intention, Lavender’s music unfolds slowly, telling you whatever story you need to hear in this moment. Her work is always a balm. (side note: check out her new book!)
