about

To convey Balthazar's dream world through music, I wanted to use instruments and textures you wouldn’t normally hear together. Toy piano with mbira, hang drum, marimba, voices, metallic percussion, udu, frame drums, synths overlaid with strings, and many other unusual sounds. I also played a lot with how tuning affects our perception of music by using 'out-of-tune' instruments interlocked with those in standard Western-tuning.

The combination of de-tuned instruments, unusual textures, and cyclical interlocking patterns create a sensation that things within this sonic world are not quite right…

Enjoy!
