Vinyl LP pressing including a CD. 2013 release from the Canadian-born, New York City-based cellist. After coming to prominence as a member of the cello-driven group Rasputin a in the '90's, she went on to arrange and play on numerous recordings and tour extensively as a member of Antony and the Johnsons, among other projects. The chance to explore her own emotional and creative world came with her solo LPs. Recorded alone in her home studio, Character develops the layering techniques Kent brought to the fore on her previous solo material, the flow of intertwining cello motifs working as an external representation of competing internal meditations. In the past, the cellist adopted field recordings to accompany her playing. On Character, their somewhat hidden nature is just as important, reflecting the need for introspection that drives the album.
