STELLAR - Wandering Stars Suite
Harpsichord, Celesta, acoustic and E-Guitar, Electronics
STELLAR - Wandering Stars Suite is an electroacoustic composition created in close collaboration with award-winning guitarist Frank Bungarten and pianist Marina Baranova. The project refers to the music of Baroque epoch and explores the theme of constellations, of temporary and imaginary connections between astronomical objects that constantly remain in motion.
The music draws upon themes of stellar nucleosynthesis and ancient Egyptian mysticism. Channeling the work of the legendary 16th century Danish astronomer/alchemist Tycho Brache, dark romaticism of E.A. Poe and modern stellar geometry, the suite of eleven miniatures references baroque doom, vintage SF film music and surreal click'n'cuts electronics. Scored for historic keyboard instruments, both acoustic and electric guitars and electronics, the music is alternately romantic, ominous, enigmatic and hypnotic.
