    The new mini-LP Alinea by Kirsten Thom hiding under the alias Bardo: Basho confusingly reminds Icelandic sensibility and style. However, it is no coincidence that she is based in Portland – a city that currently has probably the richest modulator scene in the world. Kirsten’s vocals in all tracks noticeably refer to the best female New Age patterns, and even reach deeply into mystical compositions from the 12th century. Heavenliness is the leitmotif, which directly refers to the record cover. Slow drums and even tribal structures in combination with Kirsten’s vocals reverb and modulator textures create a unique release. “Size” and “WCHJL” qualify as a secret weapon in warmup djing. The whole record can be classified as electronic ASMR.

    Details – Alinea

    Budget Cuts is excited to share Portland, OR based experimental composer Bardo:Basho’s second full-length album Alinea. Alinea is meant to evoke the idea of a non-linear history. “a” meaning not/without and “Linea” a feminine embodiment of linearity. The concept is derived from a personal history and identity which feel fragmented and this motif is reflected throughout the album. Alinea incorporates eclectic compositional and timbral styles held together by ethereal vocal performances. Expansive, intimate, and hypnotic, Alinea is a meditation on vulnerability.

    Kirsten Thom started performing as Bardo:Basho while studying music at the University of Puget Sound. Bardo:Basho’s work fuses classical structure with experimental signal processing to create boundless otherworldly soundscapes that range from drone to techno. Bardo:Basho has shared the stage with visionaries like Jlin, Laurel Halo, Actress, and Yu Su while performing at festivals like Decibel and Upstream or at Kremwerk’s influential Research club night.
