Angela Winter creates experimental, ritual, and ambient music for thresholds, where synths, keys, and strings meet otherworldly vocals, shimmering drones, and overtones. Her music has been described as “beautifully haunting” (Bandcamp Daily), “stunning” (Foxy Digitalis), and “spellbinding” (Lost and Found Sounds). Bandcamp featured her albums Sonic Essences and lightness as New & Notable releases, and her music has appeared on radio shows from Asheville to Australia and in audio compilations from Washington, DC, to Oxford, UK. She has performed at Carnegie Hall, and in addition to her own shows and festival performances, she has opened for John Cale (The Velvet Underground).
Tonight, Winter will present an evening of music, poetry, and visuals centered around her newest work, Frost, a collection of songs consisting of the poems of Robert Frost set to wintry piano and voice compositions, or sometimes spun wildly into ambient space. The art-folk trio, The River Otters will open.
Art-Folk trio, The River Otters, are world builders. Each of their compositions is a carefully rendered landscape with its own cast of characters and gravitational rules. Hailing from the woodlands of Orange County, NC, their raga-infused chamber blues and soft-spoken country narratives evoke the complexities of the forest. With a wide range of influences that includes John Fahey, Ahmad Jamal, and Leonard Cohen, they play an eclectic array of original and traditional songs that are both deep and approachable. Their music not only soothes and delights but inspires reflection. They are currently finishing an LP inspired by a lost native township hidden somewhere in the trees that surround their Piedmont home.
