this single track whisks us off to another plane of existence in which haunting strings weave together with incandescent synths.
this album & film both work with the idea of man vs. nature. Steven Mertens’ electric animation toggles back & forth between man-made geometric perfection & the natural oddness of the deep ocean. Donnacha Dennehy’s addictive timbres move between tuning systems created by humans & the ones found in natural resonance. As a result, the two elements support & enhance each other, using the same form & structure to create an incredibly moving work of art. All fifteen string parts were performed by Nadia Sirota & Liam Byrne on viola & bass viol. this was recorded in Iceland’s famed Greenhouse Studios by Paul Evans & mixed by Valgeir Sigurðsson.
