»Galaxy Heart« is the companion album to »Phosphenes« (Nov. 2021) and completes an intensive body of work that Montreal composer-violinist Jessica Moss wrote, performed and self-produced in deep isolation throughout 2020.

»Galaxy Heart« revealing the more exploratory and extemporaneous side of her profoundly expressive instrumental lyricism. Where »Phosphenes» showcased some of Moss’ most deliberate and accomplished post-classical compositions to date, »Galaxy Heart« quivers with a raw and searching energy, juxtaposing rough-hewn and honed pieces. Expanding the palette to include spiky semi-improvised electric guitar along with remotely-recorded guest contributions from drummer Jim White (Springtime, Xylouris White, Dirty Three) and contrebassist Thierry Amar (Godspeed You! Black Emperor) on a couple of tracks, the album inscribes a (mostly) instrumental space of bristling anguish, melancholia, resoluteness and conviction.
