It is a kaleidoscopic, undulating, mysterious, slowly unfolding piece best listened to with a good set of headphones. Don’t listen on the mobile phone or the tinny bluetooth speakers, they won’t do it justice.
“While being active as a composer for many years in live performance contexts, there has been little opportunity for presentation of this work in a tangible form through professional recording. I am delighted to have been selected for a Debut Disc – I feel it is the right time in my journey as a composer to make this album, which brings my music to a more wide-reaching pool of listeners, and as a milestone to showcase a body of diverse and cross genre work. Much of my work is rooted in landscape and atmosphere, exploring sonic connection between acoustic instruments and electronics, as well as being strongly connected to the voice and the Irish tradition of Sean-nós singing.”

Disclaimer: Though I’ve met Linda a few times, I don’t know her very well, so this is a very unbiased recommendation!
