Bodiless is a collection of songs inspired by the landscape, through field recordings the composer made while traveling around South America that are included in some of the tunes; and by radio drama, a genre that serves as a narrative thread for several of her pieces. In Bodiless, Ale Hop presents us with a disembodied, unhabited world, of abstract pop with an intentional synesthetic character, in which the form is constructed as the sound design of a film.
