Patricia Wolf is the solo project of Portland based musician and sound artist Patricia Hall, better known for her work with the duo Soft Metals (with Ian Hixx). Recently, she released a new track titled “Lament” which is out via Chicago based imprint Fallen Moon Recordings. Lament was composed, performed, and recorded by Patricia Wolf at her home in Portland, Oregon.
Marcus Fischer provided additional processing to place her music within a careful construction of time and space in order to support her concept. The song was mastered by Max Wolf for release on FMR.
According to the press release, “Lament” is dedicated to Patricia Wolf’s mother-in-law, Kathleen Karle who passed away in November 2019. A portion of the proceeds from Lament will be donated in her honor to the El Moro Elfin Forest, which operates under the umbrella of Small Wilderness Area Preservation. This song is an expression of Patricia’s grieving process. Patricia focused on the scientific laws stating atoms and energy cannot be created nor destroyed, but are transferred in perpetuity to find peace with this loss.
