Devotional Music for Invisible Cities
An anonymous collection of imagined Devotional Musics commissioned by Dramatic over the last two years. Listeners are briefed just as the original artists apparently were: 13 'Invisible Cities' and an accompanying ‘belief statement’ of appropriate enigma.
“Their City Tessellates Infinitely”
“Their God Is Ugly”
“No Two Chants Can Repeat” (repeat until unimaginably portentous…)
These ‘songs’ play out like the products of a delirious ethnography. Their palette, all deranged chorales and Globalisch instrumentation, calls to mind everything from Michael Nyman to Demdike Stare, Ghostbox to Angelo Badalamenti… perhaps even Broadcast on a particularly awkward day (RIP).
