Talk in a bit

Talk in a bit is the debut record by Hannah Silva, an award-winning writer and sound poet known for her innovative and virtuosic vocal performances.

Talk in a bit was recorded during a week of free improvisation at the beautiful La Sauna Recording Studio on Lake Varese, Italy. Silva's lyrical tapestries are woven together with the acrobatic drummery of Swiss percussionist Julian Sartorius, the electro-acoustic virtuosity of Italian composer Luca Martegani and the noise distortions of Swiss cellist Zeno Gabaglio.

All tracks written and performed by Hannah Silva. Available to buy in vinyl or digital download via Bandcamp.
