Exploring Disembodiment And The Human Voice With Experimental Musician Seal Eggs

Mar 28, 2018

 

Gwen Wolfenbarger is a Colorado Springs-based musician who studies music at Colorado College and releases ethereal ambient soundscapes under the alias, Seal Eggs. Wolfenbarger's music explores the themes of physicality, emotional attachment, and isolation through sonic layering of harmonies, synth sounds, with the occasional harp glissando -- an homage to her primary instrument.

 Wolfenbarger has made a name for herself in the Colorado Springs music scene and beyond since putting out her debut record, Sunday Will Be Snow, in 2016. Her latest release, a single called "Sublimation," came out as a live-performed music video in February. Following its release, she came into the 91.5 KRCC studio to guide us through the process of its creation. 

In our conversation -- which you can hear in the audio player above -- Wolfenbarger also delved into her musical influences, the themes of disembodiment in her songs and how that relates to her lived experience, and how growing up on a small goat farm in Tennessee helped shape her creative process.  Watch the live music video for "Sublimation" below:
