Sofie Birch

Good morning.

Today we’re listening to Sofie Birch, a Danish synthesist and composer based in Copenhagen. Her ambient pieces combine modular synth improvisations with recordings of analog instruments and natural environments. Pitchfork called Birch a member of the “new-age revivalists.” Her record from this past May, Whisper Fold Brush, originally soundtracked an ASMR performance. First, however, we’re playing 2019’s Island Alchemy, a collection of comforting synthesized daydreams.
