'Underneath and Sonder' is an album-length composition by experimental performer-composer Sarah Belle Reid. Recorded in a single take but then meticulously edited over many months, the pfMENTUM release explores a teetering relationship between chaos and control, breath and electricity, and inner and outer narratives. The album features Sarah Belle Reid as the solo performer, playing a trumpet that is electronically augmented using a device called MIGSI (Minimally Invasive Gesture Sensing Interface). Reid was inspired to create MIGSI as a way of integrating her passion for technology, trumpet, and improvisation in 2014, and since then has developed a prolific performance and compositional practice on the instrument.
