An extended exploration of interlocking vintage organs, Ellesmere does not fall within any defined system of thought. Articulating a highly personal and deeply lush vision of microtonality and psychoacoustics, it was recorded on the Mornington Peninsula in 2017 during a brutal summer, lending the music a scorched, introspective quality.
Rohan Drape, composer/keyboardist, computer music specialist, founding member of the Slave Pianos collective and co-organizer of the Inland Concert Series, has been making music for over 25 years. This is his first commercially released recording.
The 12th release in the Immediata series, beautifully presented in Atlantic blue recycled cardboard with silver hot stamped text on front, Ellesmere breaks the mold and includes a double sided foldout poster containing text one side and score on the other.
