Hildegard's Ghost

“I felt like there was an invisible film

unfolding before my eyes” -John Paton, Vandocument

Enter 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.

Adams’s compositions are an ethereal world, featuring collections of extended techniques and electro-acoustic blending. The merging of these aspects achieves precise colours for imaginative scopes. 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.
