Noveller is the solo electric guitar project of Brooklyn-based composer and filmmaker Sarah Lipstate. Handling the guitar as her muse, Lipstate summons a sonic palette so rich as to challenge the listener to conceive of how it’s housed in a single instrument manipulated by a solitary performer. One of the most adept guitarists of our time, Lipstate returns with her signature breathtaking cinematic, experimental soundscapes. Eloquent and striking, her instrumentals evoke colourful and otherworldly imagery. Lipstate writes in majestic, emotional strokes with pieces ranging from remarkably tense environments to shimmering psychedelic rock or unravelling into something darker. Sarah Lipstate has been recording music under the moniker of Noveller for over a decade. In addition to her large catalog of solo work, she has been a member of both Rhys Chatham’s Guitar Army and Glenn Branca’s 100 Guitar Ensemble, collaborated with Lee Ranaldo, Carla Bozulich and JG Thirlwell. The artist has also scored a number of feature and short films along with Radiolab’s live show with Glenn Kotche (Wilco) and Darin Gray. Following 2015’s ‘Fantastic Planet’, the musician was invited to tour with Iggy Pop across the US and Europe.
