2019-10-04 | Půdní pudy: Lea Bertucci (NNA Tapes) & Tomáš Vtípil & Ivan Palacký

The continuous series for culture events for off-spaces is excited to host Lea Bertucci. This time, we’re find shelter in a spacey, resonant studio of Tomáš Vtípil.

Lea Bertucii is New York-based sound artist, composer, and saxofonist. She got AVA’s Rumiště resonate heavy and low a few years ago. After myriad of performances exploring space acoustics, and releasing her new album Resonant Field on NNA Tapes, Lea Bertucci comes to push further our common vision of finding gaps and extensions of space through the sound.




Lea Bertucci is an American composer and performer whose work describes relationships between acoustic phenomena and biological resonance. In addition to her instrumental practice, (alto saxophone and bass clarinet), her work often incorporates multi-channel speaker arrays, electroacoustic feedback, extended instrumental technique and tape collage. Deeply experimental, her work is unafraid to subvert musical expectation.

Her discography includes a number of solo and collaborative releases on independent labels in the US and Europe, including I Dischi Del Barone, Obsolete Units, Telegraph Harp and Clandestine Compositions. In 2017, she signed with Burlington, Vermont-based record label NNA Tapes, releasing ‘All That is Solid Melts Into Air: Works for Strings’ on cassette, followed by the 2018 full-length album ‘Metal Aether’ on limited edition vinyl, compact disc, and digital formats.

With her new album for NNA Tapes “Resonant Field” Lea continues her devotion to the exploration of physical spaces by way of sound, channeled through her alto saxophone. Where her previous work investigated a variety of locations around the globe, ‘Resonant Field’ narrows her focus to one space in particular – the Marine A Grain Elevator at Silo City in Buffalo, New York. Using her horn, Lea awakens certain resonances within the space which have laid dormant and forgotten for decades. In this sense, ‘Resonant Field’ is the documentation of a human’s profoundly personal interaction with an inanimate space through the medium of sound.
