Sarah Davachi Interviewed

“Move the body to fold and then fill.” This line, softly sung by composer Sarah Davachi on her first-ever lyrical track, feels both like an ode to minimalist technique and a truth in how to graze sound fields at large. For me, it was an instruction in how to listen to her eighth solo LP, Cantus, Descant, without a roof over my head. When I first heard it I was camping with a friend through the Olympic Peninsula with nothing but fog and my body as an empty hall to flood with the harmonic movements between cantus and descant—Latin for “the solo or highest voice in a choral” and “the emergence of polyphonic textures”; or “individual within the community,” as Sarah says.
