LP version. Nadia Sirota's presents her new album Tessellatum will be released on Bedroom Community. Tessellatum is an album and a film, with music composed by Donnacha Dennehy and animation by Steven Mertens, performed by violist Nadia Sirota and gamba player Liam Byrne. The film and the music both work with the idea of man vs. nature. Steven Mertens's electric animation toggles back-and-forth between man-made geometric perfection and the natural oddness of the deep ocean. Donnacha Dennehy's addictive timbres move between tuning systems created by humans and the ones found in natural resonance. As a result, the two works of art support and enhance each other, using the same form and structure to create an incredibly moving work of art. All fifteen string parts were performed by Nadia Sirota and Liam Byrne on viola and bass viol. The album was recorded in Iceland's famed Greenhouse Studios by Paul Evans and mixed by Valgeir Sigursson. Produced by Nadia Sirota.
