With the world in lockdown throughout 2020, musicians have looked beyond their home horizons to find new opportunities.
Hemispheres is a spellbinding EP created by musicians from Australia and the UK who've utilised technology to collaborate from both sides of the world, resulting in an uplifting and optimistic response for 2021 and the future.
The Dartmoor & North-West Australian-inspired soundscapes meld electronics with the live sounds of didgeridoo, flute, reeds, upright piano, rhythm sticks and etherial vocals.
Hemispheres shadows the human relationship with our closest star, moving from Dawn, through an Adrenaline driven day, to an ecliptic Dusk. Prepare to be invigorated by the lightness yet depth of sound here, resonating through the spiritual heartbeat of aboriginal Australia with the cool breath of misty, timeless, Dartmoor.
