The Songwrights Apothecary Lab is a curated portal of new work that is growing out of spalding’s collaborative practice over the past years, exploring how songwriters might meaningfully incorporate therapeutic practices and knowledge into their process and production. Today she is sharing new music forged in the lab, which will continue to grow over the next several months as spalding continues to experiment with creating in this way. The Songwrights Apothecary Lab follows her GRAMMY-winning and “truly intoxicating” (NY Times) 12 Little Spells album, which explored the salutary power of sound and words, and how music and the body interact.
Available to listen at songwrightsapothecarylab.com today is the three song “TRIANGLE” suite – “formwela 1,” “formwela 2 (feat. Ganavya),” and “formwela 3.” Each song is designed to have a unique yet related affect to benefit the listener, intended to relieve the tension, grief, and isolation experienced while being home-bound during this global pandemic.
