Product details

City of Ghosts seeks to evoke a sense of the ethereal, the supernatural…shimmering between different sound worlds and scales of time. As a metaphorical starting point the work was informed by the impression of a deserted city, clouded by fog and rain. There is movement in the shadows, just out of reach; bursts of colour and light bleed through the mist. The orchestration is thick and concealed, the ensemble oscillating between individual aleatoric activity and movement as one entity. The depth of focus is blurred between clouds of obscured sound and brief moments of clarity.
