für alali

Released in February 2011 on Jerky Oats Records where it sold out within 36 hours, für alali is a 17 minute track split into two movements paying homage to Arvo Part, and is based on personal events of 2010. The first movement is a modern classical piece built around an improvised piano recording, recalling themes of heart breaking optimism that make way to bitter-sweet melancholy. This then segues into the ambient-drone second movement which focuses on the feelings of downbeat nostalgia decaying towards the horizon until it becomes just a childhood snapshot.


Recorded and produced during November & December 2010
Mastering by Christopher Leary at Melograf Mastering
