Félicia Atkinson & Jefre Cantu-Ledesma

Félicia Atkinson (born 1981 in Paris, lives and works in Brussels) is graduated with Honors from l'Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts de Paris and studied also anthropology and contemporary dance. She is a sound and visual artist, an experimental musician and the co-publisher of the independent imprint Shelter Press. Her paintings, drawings, sculptures and musical compositions are mostly abstract. Her work takes its sources from the American tradition of painting (Morris Louis, Cy Twombly, Richard Tuttle) and from avant-gardes figures who worked on chance and randomness (Fluxus, John Cage, La Monte Young...) as much as feminist figures in music and art.

Jefre Cantu-Ledesma is a San Francisco-based multi-instrumentalist and founder of music label Root Strata.

French edition
Shelter Press - Records
Félicia Atkinson and Jefre Cantu-Ledesma have thought of this new collaboration as a series of soundscapes filled with literary and cinematographic references, from Sylvia Plath's poetry to the films of Hal Hartley and Wong Kar Wai. The album carries a strange echo of the 1990s, materialized in Julien Carreyn's cover photograph.
