‘!’ (pronounced ‘Exclamation’) is the debut album from electronic artist and harpist Lara Somogyi. With ‘!’, Somogyi builds a new creative sound world – an atmosphere – based around the harp and its expressive capabilities and electronics. It is the result of a decade’s long dive into sonic exploration, which pushes the harp to its furthest potential. Here, we are introduced to a whole world of sound from a single instrument. For Lara, the release of ‘!’ revolves around further hyper-creative deviations from traditional harp techniques. Somogyi put blu-tack onto the strings. She used a bow. In one instance, a milk frother is used. There are deep layers of texture throughout, manipulating the harp into new frontiers. ‘!’ is like a journey. Moving from trance-like strings on album opener ‘¬™√•cceptances’, through to glitched-out patterns on a later track like ‘aviary’, ‘!’ bridges the gap between the electronic and classical worlds with ease and brings many of the senses into play.
