CAP24 Stephanie Cheng Smith

Following the (pre-)release of her first physical album, “Night Travels,” Stephanie Smith reveals how these tracks came together, starting from Bach chorales arranged on a Dark Energy Synth and then dipping into her musical mainstays of violin and voice. We touch on the role of boredom in the creative process and what it’s like to switch gears between improvisational work, composition, and sound art/installation, the latter offering an introduction to her “Little Shits.” All in all, a wonderful glimpse into the workings of an eclectic and unique musical voice.
