Montreal-based composer Kara-Lis Coverdale draws on her experiences as a classically-trained pianist, church organist, and omnivorous explorer of electronic music. In her albums on labels such as Boomkat, Sacred Phrases, and Umor Rex, and in intense, explorative live performances, Coverdale manipulates sounds from synthetic and traditional instruments to create layered textures and spacious arrangements. In many compositions, her vignettes explore how sonic material can evoke complex feelings such as sanctity, disembodiment, aggression, and ethereal beauty.
