September 25, 2019 — Destinations, the forthcoming album by multi-instrumentalist, sonic sorceress Lisa Bella Donna is a deep-diving, yet rhythmically-inviting album of classic electronic music. Each of the four compositions on the album compliment the destination of the next. The album sees release on October 1, and features “Mystery Rituals, featured earlier this year in Bella Donna’s Moog Music video.
Performed entirely on Moog and ARP synthesizers, and aided along the journey by a host of Earthquaker Devices, Destinations picks up where Bella Donna’s previous 2019 releases, Circulus and Afternoon Dreams, left off.
Rich with polyphonic soundscapes and a garden wall of sequencers, soaring melodies and burning solos add excitement and contrast all throughout. Lisa’s passion and attention to detail just continues to flourish and expand the boundaries of modern synthesizer music. The evidence is clear all throughout this recording.
