At 10:35 Mark talks with musician and songwriter Sarah Magill about her music project Quiet Takes, and the her new EP, WEEKLY, WEAKLY, coming out November 5, 2021. This is Sarah’s third collaboration with producer/multi-instrumentalist David Bennett. Sarah writes, “I made WEEKLY, WEAKLY exactly as titled: During weekly Friday sessions at Aorist Studios with my producer, David Bennett, while feeling extremely weak. I was living alone during the pandemic and (like many of us) coping with isolation, depression and anxiety. Making this EP was my lifeboat. Both the process of making music — refining lyrics, experimenting with new textures, collaborating on harmonies — and the commitment to the weekly process kept me relatively grounded and connected. This project tethered me to human-ness when I was afraid I was going to float off into some kind of feral, disconnected netherworld of pandemic loneliness. I’ll forever be grateful to David and his wife, Kayla, for creating a safe space to continue working at Aorist during such a dangerous time.” More info at: https://quiettakes.com
