‘A Still, Thin Sound’ is an attempt to create sonic impressions of two very different kinds of spiritual experiences: collective and individual. The ideas are sourced from two Biblical passages: the first describing the giving of the Ten Commandments and the Torah to the Hebrew nation at Mount Sinai, shortly after the Exodus from Egypt, the second being the prophet Elijah’s one-to-one encounter with the Divine spirit.
Bonus track: ‘Circulation’ was written to accompany visual artist Rachel Garrard’s ground-breaking holographic film of the same name. The film won the 1st prize at the 2009 Musion Holographic film awards. It is a purely electronic piece exploring circular motion in sound form.
Original album released in 2009
