A series of swirls gently caught and dearly held, “Prelude (An Eternity of Light)” sets a stirring scene, as “Aubade (The Farewell Is a Beginning)” glides with balletic, lucid ease. These are the first two selections on Distant Intervals, the debut album from Brooklyn-based composer and cellist Issei Herr. Out from April 7th on NNA Tapes, you can pre-order cassette and digital editions of it from Bandcamp, while pre-saving information is here.
