Enter into the world Hildegard’s Ghost through the musical mind of Roisin Adams as it is slowly unveiled by she and her daring bandmates – Elisa Thorn on harp and Justin Devries on drums accompany Adams on piano to marry composition with improvisation – drawing from the worlds of jazz, contemporary classical, world music, to name but a few musical sources.
Adams’s compositions are an ethereal world, featuring collections of extended techniques and electro-acoustic blending. The merging of these elements evokes unique sonic landscapes, as the band has a cinematic approach to group improvisation. Their explorations of narrative structure bend the imagination and the limits of their instruments – but never lose connection with the song’s beating heart. You’ll catch glimpses of its pulse in each return to melody and timbre.
