The violinist and vocalist presents a visual accompaniment to music from her new album, Pools Of Light

Canadian violin player Jessica Moss has previously collaborated with Black Ox Orkestar, Arcade Fire and most prominently plays with the group Thee Silver Mt Zion Memorial Orchestra, of which she is an original member. Pools Of Light is released on the Montreal based label Constellation and is her second solo offering. The video, a montage of slowly morphing land and seascapes, was filmed and edited by Jessica herself and is soundtracked by a melding of the last two tracks from the record – “Glaciers II, Pt I” and “Glaciers II, Pt II”. Moss begins a UK tour on 15 June, which will include a special Wire 400 show at London Fields Brewhouse on 16 June with Zu and Tomaga. Full details listed below.
