Lori Goldston: The Waves And What's Under

Lori Goldston has had a lot of highlights marking her fruitful career thus far, including being Nirvana’s touring cellist from 1993-1994 and being part of their legendary MTV Unplugged session, collaborations with David Byrne, Earth, The Wedding Present and more, as well as accompanying art and multimedia exhibits, and scoring operas, films, theater, and dance productions. The artist's new album, High and Low, will be out on October 7th, 2022 via SofaBurn.

High and Low is grounded on at least two pivotal sections; solo improvisational cello works, and improvised duet performances with like-minded drummer Dan Sasaki (Jackie O Motherfucker, Gun Club). The 'High' part is a collection of improvisational tributes to Goldston's friend, Canadian artist and musician Geneviève Elverum. This section of the album is represented by the new song, The Wave and What's Under, which has a straight meditative line with spontaneous variations.

When Elverum was very ill, she imagined “herself floating in the air above a mountain.” Lori explains, “I had a kind of vision about playing music that would help keep her floating easily there, and at the same time sustain the ripples of her presence in the world.

The Wave and What's Under comes with a beautiful, filmic video, directed by Clyde Petersen, a transgender artist based in the Northwest. "Lori Goldston and I convened on a secret island in the Salish Sea to create the music video," Petersen describes. "The Boatel, a private guest house for visitors, was constructed out of an old wooden boat, cut into pieces and hauled onto the shore to be reassembled in the forest. It is surrounded by Alder and Cedar trees, baby fawns, chipmunks and birds of all varieties who spend their days in the blackberry brambles, carving out nests and spots of shade to rest in while eating the tender leaves each spring brings."
