Apocalypse Pieces is a trilogy of experimental compositions investigating electronic studio manipulation, found sound, unusual musical scales, and ‘glitching’. Inspired by the literary works of Richard Matheson’s I Am Legend, which tells the tale of a man who believes himself to be the last remnant of humanity, and Cormac McCarthy’s story of a man and his son’s fight for survival, The Road, Apocalypse Pieces explores the musical sounds of such a disparate situation.

Instrumentation varies from Cello and Electric Guitars, to Synths, to found sound; biscuit tin, coke can, glass bottles (these can mainly be heard on track 3).

Ultimately this was a form of compositional experimentation for me to find new ways of instrumenting.
