Distant Flashing Light
A collection of 6 instrumental songs that uses a rich aural palette of orchestral instruments, electronics and sound design.
The ideas behind these songs were to try and evoke places of beauty , majesty and darkness. Pieces of music that could be used in film or theatre, but where text would normally be the narrative in a film . In this music , the melody assumes that role.
The music has a strong influenece from some of my favourite composers such as Jóhann Jóhannsson, Max Richter, Olafur Arnalds, Sakamoto, AWVFTS and others in the new electro/classical genre.
All songs composed ,performed and produced by S.M. David Barrett-guitars on A Thousand Arms Cover artwork by Michael Walton Typography and layout design by Calum Balmain Matthews P&C 2021 Scott Matthews
