"The Owls" (excerpt)

From Visions/Voices

Félicia Atkinson can conjure up some mighty spacious ghost towns in sound. Visions/Voices gathers three years of work, previously released as limited-run editions, newly mastered by James Plotkin and released by Umor Rex. Its cobwebbed attic contains an odd collection of subtly deranged and detuned musical instruments: piano, harp, guitars, keyboards and a voice deeply lost in the woods. “The Owls” was previously released as a cassette by Le Bon Accueil Rennes.
