"This album is my expression of love and appreciation for electricity," says Smith

Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith has a new album on the way.

Titled The Mosaic Of Transformation, it's preceded by 10-minute lead track 'Expanding Electricity', which you can hear above.

"I guess in one sentence, this album is my expression of love and appreciation for electricity," says Smith. While writing and recording the album, she adopted a daily practice of physical movement, passing electricity through her body and into motion, somewhat reflecting her audio practice, which, as a press release explains, "sends currents through modular synths and into the air through speakers."

"My movement practice has been a constant transformation piece by piece," Smith adds. "I made this album in the same way. Every day I would transform what I did yesterday... into something else. This album has gone through about 12 different versions of itself."

Ghostly International will release the nine-track The Mosaic Of Transformation on May 15.
