Vibraphonist/composer Patricia Brennan, along with percussionist / turntablist Arktureye have released “Maquishti Prismatic,” an electronic re-working of Brennan’s highly praised debut album Maquishtione of the most highly praised experimental albums of 2021.

Performed solo by Brennan on vibraphone and marimba and employing unusual techniques and occasional electronics, many of the compositions on Maquishti were borne from improvisations created live in the studio. At times exploring silence and space, stillness and patience the album investigates new sonic territories with an endless sense of curiosity.

Speaking on”Maquishti Prismatic,” Arktureye says “Texturally paradoxical, smooth but sharp, Maquishti has been in my ear and part of my life since the compositions were being created. I feel fortunate to have gotten to know Patricia’s musical personality and be around its patient strength. This electronic piece is made up of various samples across her solo record. The collection of phrases chosen are moments on the record floating in time. This piece brings sonic abstractions of an underlying pulse based on each sample’s texture.”

Tangled tranquility…improvising with focus and forbearance, leaving plenty of cloudless space
– THE NEW YORK TIMES

Unprecedented sounds: warm and sleek, both modern and eternal
– PITCHFORK, 7.4

Exquisitely sculpted spontaneous compositions
– THE WIRE

Comfort with long silences and slowly building apexes typify Brennan’s masterful touch as an improvisor. But her more conventional performances are just as creative and impactful, and imbue Maquishti with a beautiful revelry
