Félicia Atkinson is a French electroacoustic artist who also co-runs the Shelter Press imprint. She will perform at Unsound in the wake of The Flower and The Vessel, an album that was created while pregnant on tour, in impersonal hotel rooms in foreign cities. She describes it as “a record not about being pregnant but a record made with pregnancy.” Each day and night, finding herself far from home, she asked herself “What am I doing here? How can I connect myself to the world?” The answer gradually revealed itself: “With small gestures: recording my voice, recording birds, a simple melody.”
