American composer and performer Lea Bertucci’s work describes relationships between acoustic phenomena and biological resonance. In addition to her instrumental practice, (alto saxophone and bass clarinet), her work often incorporates multi-channel speaker arrays, electroacoustic feedback, extended instrumental technique and tape collage.
Her output includes a number of solo and collaborative releases on independent labels, as well as a commission for instrumental ensemble Tigue and a book of graphic scores entitled The Tonebook. Her most recent record Metal Aether (2018) was recorded in part in a former military base in Le Havre, France. Here, Lea Bertucci explores her acute interest in the nature of acoustics and the harmonic accumulation of sound, producing pulsing minimalist patterns, transcendent drones, and upper register squalls with her horn, which envelop the space in waves of overtones, microtones, and psychoacoustic effects.
