In Her Own Voice, LYRA PRAMUK – Fountain
by Walter Price
Manipulation, I must declare! Awe-inspiring control and foresight in what one’s voice is and can be is the blueprint for composer and performer Lyra Pramuk’s album, ‘Fountain’. Seven tracks of retro New Age, haunting psych trips, and mesmerizing and cohesive vignettes that’ll keep the listener hanging on for more. This album is a study in the way vocal pitch and tempo can be enticed and twisted into new unexplored territories. Vocal cords and synthabilities intertwined in this one-of-a-kind work of art and Pramuk, based in Berlin, isn’t going to be easily pigeonholed into a predetermined genre. She’s forging a path all her own, and it’s compellingly out of this world.
And you can stream the single “Tendril” as well as the entire merging of time, space, elements, nature, and self album, now at the GTC.

“…what I’m really saying is that you don’t need to do anything, because if you see yourself in the correct way, you are all as much extraordinary phenomenon of nature as trees, clouds, the patterns in running water, the flickering of fire, the arrangement of the stars, and the form of a galaxy. you are all just like that, and there is nothing wrong with you at all.” – Alan Watts
