    Founded in 2011, Amalaise is a Baltimore-based collaboration between visual and sound artist Beth Brown and established ambient electronic musician Jason Sloan. Brown’s vocal training and formal education in fine art helped to inform the overall aesthetic of the project.

    The development of their debut album, “Twinning Pools,” consists of experimentation with vocals and field recordings in the spirit of Musique Concrète. Brown discovered micro-sound worlds existing in everyday items, such as kitchen appliances, free weights, house furniture, pots and pans, glass bottles, metal fencing, pipes, and countless other utilitarian objects. Most of “Twinning Pools” began as short exploratory soundscapes, designed to discover potential sonic textures from these unconventional instruments. Using various recording techniques, Brown would compose loosely structured pieces of music that would become the backbone of “Twinning Pools.” Together in the studio, Brown and Sloan combined these compositions with traditional instruments and production methods. After nearly a year of fine tuning, these ethereal soundscapes began to form the direction and content of the album, which was released March 15, 2012.

    Amalaise is currently working on a follow-up EP to “Twinning Pools,” in addition to select live performances.

about

"The motion from near-chaos to near-order throughout Twinning Pools makes perfect and pleasant sense. There is a total journey going on here. A must-hear debut from Amalaise." - Hypnagogue.net
