Saloli

biography
Portland, Oregon resident Mary Sutton's solo project Saloli threads together complementary shades of soft-hued hypnosis, dazed modal introspection, icy amusement park reverie, and lunar lullaby into prismatic suites of contemplative melody and synthetic communion. Her songs are active rather than ambient yet their structure is more suggestive than scripted, full of lulls, asymmetries, and daydreams. She writes her pieces specifically to be played live on analog synthesizer, with no overdubs or post-production wizardry. The sound of Saloli is one of warm-blooded wiring, turned on and tapped into, emotive and electric, storied machines speaking through all too human hands.
