Jessica Moss – Pools of Light

Tuesday 11th, July 2017 / 09:00

 

By Cole Parker

Constellation Records

Jessica Moss is the violinist and composer that has been a member of the Montreal post-rock behemoth Thee Silver Mt. Zion Orchestra since their second release, Born into Trouble as the Sparks Fly Upwards (2001). Since the band’s hiatus, she’s been working diligently touring and writing her own solo material. First, with Under Plastic Island, an independant release in 2015 and now with her label debut, Pools of Light.

For fans of Silver Mt. Zion, the violin-centered Pools of Light will be a treat. Moss’ knack for swelling orchestral layers of sound persists in her solo work but it is more strongly influenced by drone and folk. Rather than aiming to build emotion on top of itself, Pools of Light instead focuses on crafting atmosphere.

It has the capability to teleport you into its lush world. You can get lost in it, but so too can Moss and the improvisational tone of the record can sometimes leave it to meander without clear direction.

Nonetheless, Pools of Light can leave you drowning in its undercurrent of dark neo-classical.
