Re:konstruKt: New Music Online from Istanbul

By Published: September 1, 2011
"More than executing notes or rhythms or melody, a song or a piece of music to me is a field for being—for direct living, feeling, breathing, and expressing in the moment." Sabrina Siegel is a guitarist, bassist and cymbalist. She plays guitars with rocks. Born in New York and brought up in California, Siegel now lives in Eugene, Oregon, dealing also with performances, photography and video art. The cover image for Karma Trinley Drolma is a detail from her Nature's Recomposition Buddha painting. Sabrina Siegel music has to do with situation of "not-knowing," the "precarious," the questioning of the relationship with "Nature/Body/Sound/Self/Music." But her records stand by themselves as complete and fresh pieces of music.
