Marielle V Jakobsons’ upcoming record Star Core revolves around minimalist synthesizer layers with melodic violin, flute, and vocals over elongated bass grooves. The songs on the album are Jakobsons’ version of devotional hymns, and they create a cosmic yet personal environment to slow down with and to get lost in.
As an intermedia artist, Jakobsons recently completed the Djerassi Resident Artists Program in Woodside, California, where she continued to develop her macro-cymatic Instrument, which also was used to create the ethereal, liquid sky on the cover of Star Core. “My art is all about heightening our experience of place around and within us,” says Jakobsons, “and creating immersive environments with sound and light.”
