Artist Kit Interview: Briana Marela

January 7, 2016 5:03 PM

When Patterning was released back on August 20th, Seattle-based Briana Marela shared with us an artist kit that was included in the initial launch. The next day, her most recent album, entitled All Around Us, was also released. The samples in Briana's kit are but tiny fragments of what her finished recordings sound like, but they give us a glimpse into what makes those recordings so special. As she says in our interview, the voice remains her most vital instrument. In the case of All Around Us, this means both clear and powerful lyrical content, as well as distinctive vocal samples that are primary sources of texture, rhythm, and ambiance. It was great to check in with Briana again, just over four months after each of our exciting releases.
