Out next month, it'll be the third full-length she's released on Domino.
The 15-track LP will follow up Have You In My Wilderness, released through Domino in 2015. The label will also handle the new record, which Holter produced with Cole MGN and Kenny Gilmore. It gets its name from an Etel Adnan short story from her 2009 collection, Master Of The Eclipse. A line in the story reads: "I found myself in an aviary full of shrieking birds."
"Amidst all the internal and external babble we experience daily, it's hard to find one's foundation," said Holter. "I think this album is reflecting that feeling of cacophony and how one responds to it as a person—how one behaves, how one looks for love, for solace. Maybe it's a matter of listening to and gathering the seeming madness, of forming something out of it and envisioning a future."
Holter also features on the upcoming FRKWYS record, Nue, which is out at the end of the month on RVNG Intl. It sees Tashi Wada and his father, Yoshi Wada, team up with an ensemble that includes Cole MGN and Holter's percussionist, Corey Fogel. Returning the favour, Tashi Wada appears on Aviary to play bagpipes and synths.
