The Auerglass is a two person pump organ created by Tauba Auerbach and Cameron Mesirow. The instrument cannot be played alone. Each player has a keyboard with alternating notes of a four octave scale. Each player must pump to supply the wind to the other player’s notes.
Glasser a name coined by Cameron Mesirow, a name she first heard in a dream of hers. Her ethereal voice layered upon eclectic forms of precussion, tropic pop and abstract forms of electronic music: makes the cut for me. She’s been compared to the likes of Zola Jesus, Fever Ray,Bat For Lashes and Bjork.
Glasser belongs to the Mystic-Pop scene as I would call it. Aligned with artists such as Fever Ray and Zola Jesus. Yet she still manages to retain that authenticity about her. Her clever use of percussion and abstract sounds fusing them with dreamy/hazy shimmers really accentuates her wide vocal range. Her sound is unique, aesthetic and original.
The one thing that really stood out in Glasser’s music is her voice. it’s almost like a crystal ball filled with different spheres of sound. each sphere illuminates the mere complexity of her vocal range. Her voice can sound angelic simultaneously evolving into what sounds like an ocean of delicate lullabies.
Cameron Mesirow (Glasser) is a clear depiction of the indulgence of creativity. And thats what makes her music so special. Her debut album Ring is a must have and is constantly on repeat on my medieval ipod.
For those individuals who appreciate creativity and a unique sound, Glasser is the epitome of all things creative. Sincerely.Nathan
Living in New York City for the past three years, Cameron Mesirow has often been inclined to hum to herself while walking along the streets of Manhattan. More times than not the L.A. transplant is making it up as she goes, working out the melody to a song she’ll later record as Glasser. “Something about it is really isolating,” says Mesirow, sitting in her East Village apartment. “You have—definitely not your own sound bubble—but you feel less self-conscious because it’s so loud and noisy.” (via Glasser: Inside And Out Interview | Under the Radar - Music Magazine)
You’ve got the right style to attract me lady. I’m a sucker for a girl with strong pipes and some good tribally electronic beats. But… let’s face it. You haven’t been round very long and your basically on here solely for your performance on Apply. You know, that part where you go WOOP. WOOP. WOOP. WOOP. yeah i really really like that. but there are two versions of that song and one of them I don’t think you do very good on at all. So I’m giving you the benefit of the doubt here in hopes that you’ll continue doing what I love in the future :]. Here’s where you got me (the good version); http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GYhUlP6mf54
