This sight is an archive of the first release -ri-solv-
-ri-solv- mahri autumn’s first album was released in March 2010.
Formed in the ether via email between NYC + the South Coast of Australia, without a single conversation. The result is something other than either.
Created, played and recorded largely in Marianthe Loucataris’ home studio with sound additions, mixing and mastering from New York City based musician/producer Brian Siskind (FOGNODE) Siskind has also worked with Michael Schrieve (Santana), Bela Fleck and Clare Burson as well as having a wonderful body of his own work.
“compelling audio”…….”great stuff”…………”highly recommended”
“The CD leaves me with a subtle, satisfied feeling and although dark and introspective (my fave type of songs like this), the songs offer many portals of enjoyment. Thank you for sharing this with me.”
“ Congratulations to you both Mahri and Brian for creating some very beautiful art. I look forward to hearing about your success in the near future.”
Jack Douglas (producer who worked with John Lennon and Patti Smith)
“ I love the C.D” …..“a rich and strange album” … “ poetic and otherworldly”
Michael Cathcart- ABC Radio National
“The sensual, otherworldly soundscapes found on Mahri Autumn’s Ri-Solv reveal plenty about digital-era music-making: while the bulk of the album was crafted by Autumn in her Wollongong home studio, embellishments were added by Brian Siskind, in New York, without actually meeting the gifted Ms Autumn. He also mixed the album. And if it’s indeed possible to sound familiar yet new at the same time, Autumn has achieved just that, as she channels such timeless voices as Linda Thompson and Sandy Denny, while simultaneously nodding in the direction of 21st century free spirits Ani DiFranco and Sarah Blasko, amongst others.”
Jeff Apter, author of A Pure Drop: The Life of Jeff Buckley
“….a most soulful voice that is full of quiet passion and deep yearning……Setting these traditional percussive sounds in a very modern soundscape makes listening all the more pleasurable, as you will hear curious sounds that fit perfectly into the context of these ambient, enveloping tracks that, honestly, can’t really be pinned onto any genre. She creates ethereal soundscapes, with overlapping vocal melodies and layer upon layer of carefully-placed instrumental and electronic elements.
From twinkling piano and gorgeous accordion drones, to the delicately plucked acoustic guitar and unique percussive elements, and of course, that astounding emotionally exposed voice, Mahri Autum’s ri-solv is a beautiful cluster of deeply heartfelt songs that are wonderful in their subtle complexity.”
“More Great Music That I Just Didn’t have Time to Play!”
