Kristine Leschpers The Opening, Or Closing Of A Door, is a paean tothe sensory world. Its the first Leschper has released under her givenname, having retired the moniker Mothers after eight years of performing and releasing music under it. Though both projects are guided by Leschpers idiosyncratic approach to songwriting, they couldntsound more different. While Mothers drew inspiration from the stark,skeletal sounds of post-punk and contemporary folk, Leschpersnew work is practically baroque, integrating an array of synthesizers,strings, woodwinds, and over a dozen percussive instruments. Earlierwork didnt involve recording as part of the writing process, recordings were simply made as a document of something that had beenwritten and rehearsed. I have since discovered a deep affection forhome recording and sound exploration, finding that I thrive in thoserabbit holes of texture, timbre, rhythm, which can add so much complexity to the emotionality of a composition.

The at-home recording process gave Leschper freedom to set herpersonal ethos to music divorced from the pressure of an audience.As she worked on The Opening, Or Closing Of A Door, the constellation of ideas that had guided her personal transformation began tocohere into something communicable through music.
