  • Description

    An album of electronic soundscapes from an imagined score inspired by scenes from the bestselling novel 'Piranesi' by Susanna Clarke.After reading and re-reading 'Piranesi', the album was written and recorded in Willie G's studio in the East Anglian fens - the project was started during the first Covid lockdown and reflects the deep sense of isolation that prevailed for many people during that period. The eight tracks depict specific locations and events in the novel and were conceived as parts of an imagined score were the novel ever be adapted for television.

    As with Willie G's previous albums this is wholly electronic, using his discrete setup of hardware modular synths and sequencers.
