Félicia Atkinson

"Un Ovale Vert"

From The Flower And The Vessel

Drawing on the history of electronics, musique concrète, field recordings and improvisation, Parisian born composer and poet Félicia Atkinson’s work embraces art, improvisation, science fiction, composition, chance, noise, abstraction and poetry. The Flower And The Vessel was produced while Atkinson was touring and pregnant – she describes it as “a record not about being pregnant but a record made with pregnancy”.,
