Magda Drozd is deeply concerned with listening in her artistic practice. Her second album, 18 Floors, Drozd focused on the apartment building she called home for several years, compiling a corpus of field recordings in and of the building, which she approached as a living organism rather than static material.

The result challenges current assumptions about living together in urban settings. The field recordings were woven into eleven speculative tracks consisting of sounds including violins, guitars, synthesizers, drum machines, and Drozd's voice.

The music moves between sound art, ambient, indie rock, and R&B. 18 Floors presciently emphasizes the importance of the home, which has become glaringly obvious in the age of Corona.

Her foresight constitutes her avant-gardism as much as her preference for documenting what might be over what actually is.

The result is an album that creates a space for what is transient, uncertain, and unstable.

And it creates a space for opportunities, which we need now more than ever.
