Interdisciplinary artist and performer A Space for Sound's latest offering for Commend THERE, Sometimes underwater (feels like home), is an emotional release that enchants with its otherworldly tranquility. Drawing from a theme of water dealt with extensively across earlier works, the Brooklyn-based artist, real name Rena Anakwe, evokes images of misty rain, burbling ravines and the great depths of the ocean in her latest project. Composed over the course of two days on Anakwe's apartment floor, the record was assembled with tank drums, singing bowls, a synth, a multi-track tape machine, an effects pedal and her own pacifying vocals. The resulting piece is a captivating display of minimalism, intended to guide us on our individual healing journeys.
