Eliza McCarthy and Mica Levi 'Slow Dark Green Murky Waterfall' LP
Mica Levi returns to Slip with six piano pieces played by Eliza McCarthy in Slow Dark Green Murky Waterfall - a crepuscular suite riddled with Mica’s inquisitive, conversational phrasing and smartly expanding upon their 7” track, Riding Through Drinking Harpo Dine, a new recording of which also appears in this set. The culmination of three years work between Mica and Eliza - winner of the 2013 British Contemporary Piano Competition - Slow Dark Green Murky Waterfall follows up their collaboration on the Oscar-nominated score for Pablo Larrain’s Jackie score with a finer-shaded, patient space for low-lit, smoky expression that’s so intimate and personal it almost feels like eavesdropping a private recording. Ineffably bound by a sense of unreal poise, Eliza’s interpretations are subtly, dynamically rendered in-the-mix by Mica to present the pieces as though in flux, like poignant, unresolved statements that occur in the flow of quiet, intent dialogue and linger in the air. It’s testament to the pair’s well-honed intuition that the results connote this feeling so naturally.
