As a companion piece to her most recent album, ‘Cantus, Descant’, Canadian musician and composer Sarah Davachi releases ‘Figures In Open Air’ on her own Late Music label. Comprising several live and alternate versions, it engagingly documents her introspective drones. Accordingly, both ‘Live In Berlin’ and ‘Live In Chicago’, which clock in just short of the hour mark, are the most compelling. Their long-form spools of organ drift immediately demand the listener’s attention, grasping it for the full duration.
