NEW RELEASE ++ AN F SHARP IN A WHITE ROOM

 



It was 2006 and I was living in an artist's studio in the 14th arrondissement in Paris. My studio was all white: white sheets, white carpet, white walls. One day, a neighbor commented to me: "Your room is all white but you always dress in black. It's like you are trying to imitate the keys of your piano." She was onto something.

It was in this same studio that I borrowed my first Casio VL-Tone from a neighbor and experimented with my first set of thimbles. I was a classical pianist and was be
ginning to go through my classical rebellion. So I started translating my technique into something my own and decided to abandon the ivories for calculator buttons and metallic pling.

Some of the pieces on this album are by classical greats you might recognize: Bach, Haydn, Debussy. The rest are by me: Bhangrian - a piece inspired by Indian classical music, Gliss Gliss Underwood - a piece inspired by the prepared piano music of John Cage and percussion of Harry Partch and Hommage au Fromage - a piano trio for violin, cello and piano which musically portrays a cat, a mouse and a piece of cheese.

I hope you enjoy.

The Surf Glock EP

NEW RELEASE! ⚡️☠️ It’s #bandcampfriday so i’ve decided it’s time to share my Surf Glock EP. I’ve been holding onto this one for a long time but today is the day to let her rip. This band was first known as Mano Fico (The Fig Hand), then Foxglove. I was obsessed at the time with surf rock and Dick Dale so I formed the first ever surf glock band. It was recorded by Jake Loewenstein of Sebadoh at the house of one of the Dirty Projectors. Foxglove included Adam Fisher on bass. Adam Fisher was a beloved sound engineer in Brooklyn who tragically passed away in 2013. Rest in peace, Adam. This release is for you. ✨

L'oiseau-mouche s'en va vers le soleil

New Bandcamp release today. "L'oiseau-mouche s'en va vers le soleil" (the hummingbird goes toward the sun). This piece was inspired by daily meditations in a cluster of 11 Norway spruce trees in the pocket of a very old cemetery. Enjoy and stay safe.

LE SLOW #5

A candy-colored croissant they call Natalie tiptoes to your room every night, just to sprinkle telstars at the Café Central until Pino D'Angio walks in and says, "Go to sleep, we are all just bread."

BACH TO THE FUTURE MARATHON 2020 (RI)

Looks like a Casio, Feels like a Piano

Glockabelle plays two Casio-VL Tones and a glockenspiel with eight thimbles. She would like to apologize to J.S. Bach in advance for transcribing two of his preludes to one-centimeter plastic calculator buttons. It seemed like a good idea at the time. She would also like to thank Middlebury College for allowing her to perform one prelude on their concert grand piano. She hopes this has redeemed her in Bach’s esteem with some semblance of elegance and class. www.glockabelle.com

LA NUIT DEST MUSÉES À ROANNE

On the night of May 18, 2019, fifteen strangers met in a fine arts Museum in the French town of Roanne. They wore paper boat hats and marched to my thimble glock rendition of Erik Satie's Gnossienne No. 1. Why? Why not.

RICKY RAINBOW BEARD SHOW 🌈🌈🌈 12.7.18

Had the honor of being the special guest on The Ricky Rainbow Beard Show in Providence, RI for his epsiode on LIGHTS. Brought light up glasses for all the kiddos. Everyone sat on the magical lucky white tiger blanket and then we all danced our brains out.  ^_^
