“…serenely atmospheric music for strings…”

The leading USA music publication I Care if You Listen has just premiered Where distant city lights flicker on half-frozen ponds, a track for solo violin and resonators from Jonathan Nangle’s new album, Pause.

In the 2011 composition, Nangle enhances a solo violin with electronic resonators which subtly colour the musical material like a heat shimmer.

“Crash Ensemble member Aoife Ní Bhriain navigates a plethora of double stops, gossamer harmonics, and tender melodies with exceptional sensitivity,” writes I Care if You Listen’s Amanda Cook.

The album, described by Cook as “serenely atmospheric music for strings”, is available to pre-order before its launch on 14 July.
