Out via the Cat Werk Imprint label is the new Olivia Louvel album “SculptOr [Hepworth Resounds] ”. The release has been 3 years in the making and takes as starting point Barbara Hepworth’s writings as assembled by Sophie Bowness in “Writings and Conversations” (check the book here on Aamazon).

Olivia: “Throughout my research I discovered that Hepworth had recorded a tape herself in her art studio in St Ives; this lead to the development of resounding The Sculptor Speaks, which will be premiered on Resonance FM. Naturally I visited the Sculpture Garden in St Ives, a true enchantment and the Hepworth Wakefield Museum too.”

It’s also Barbara Hepworth’s voice that you hear opening on the album. Louvel re-sculpted Hepworth’s voice in the first moments of “Use Your Own Body” until handing over her text to Louvel’s own voice for the remainder of the compositions.

You can pre-order your copy of the album in a deluxe digipack CD straight from Cat Werk Imprint and get an immediate download of the track “The Weaver”, which you can stream below.

Below is a video trailer of “SculptOr [Hepworth Resounds] ”, which features excerpts from track 1 “Use Your Own Body”, track 5 “I, The Sculptor” and track 3 “I Draw What I Feel In My Body”.
