about the record

Sam Wenc is a composer and multi-instrumentalist working with sound, text, and objects. He utilizes guitar, pedal steel guitar, vibraphone, electronics, field recordings, and found objects to compose both structured and formless pieces that attempt to blur concepts of what constitutes as “folk music.”

“Heart Music was recorded over the course of 2019 and 2020. The initial intention was not necessarily to produce an album, but rather to explore composing from a percussive perspective and trying to avert relying heavily on the pedal steel guitar and guitar as primary modes of composing. Thematically, much of the music (to me) takes on a somewhat ceremonial feeling and explores the trajectory of intra-personal contradictions and what it means to navigate a disharmonious public sphere. More so than on previous albums, I felt myself letting rhythm, intuition, and improvisation guide the work, often resulting in longer form pieces that allow myself (and hopefully the listener) to listen deeply, observing moments of tension and harmony tangled, dependent, and resolved by one another." - Sam Wenc
