Recordings from the Åland Islands (New LP)Jeremiah Chiu & Marta Sofia Honer
Label: International Anthem
Debut duo album from the unlikely pairing of Jeremiah Chiu’s modular synthesizer
and Marta Sofia Honer’s viola features post-composed improvisations interwoven
with field recordings from sojourns on the Åland archipelago in the Baltic Sea.
An active intersectional cultural producer in the Los Angeles scene, Chiu is known
for his visual art as much as his music. A professor at Otis College of Art and
Design by trade, Chiu’s a regular musical collaborator of Booker Stardrum, Celia
Hollander, Dustin Wong, and Sam Prekop. Honer is a first call session player for the likes of Adrian Younge and Beyoncé. She’s also played on recordings by Chloe x Halle, Angel Olsen, Fleet Foxes, Stanley Clarke and others, including five recordings with Grammy nominations.
