« Stillborn » is the Monthly Release for February 2020.

The piece is the second chapter of a composition called « Written In The Stars » which loosely tells the story of a person mourning the unexpected and untimely ending of an undertaking that was very dear to them.

In the storyline, the function of the piece is to suggest the dramatic event that led to the grieving process, the unsuccessful endeavour which is symbolized by a stillborn child. The chapter sets the scene as the protagonist, having left the city at the end of day, muses about the deceased infant while getting ready for a lonely night of mourning in nature.

The music strides forward as the protagonist transitions from a city dweller frame of mind to an introspective state, all the while advancing deeper into the wilderness. As the piece concludes, memories give way to reflection as the griever becomes enthralled by the surroundings and the starry skies.

At its origin, back in July 2017, the composition was intended as an experimental research and development exercise, with the aim of reaching new creative spaces.

The composition blends stylistic elements borrowed from many genres ranging from urban to progressive. The music pulses to the beat of electronic and acoustic drum sounds, and is augmented by excerpts of poetry readings.

This is a video for the single version of the piece. Hopefully, when the recording of the whole of « Written In The Stars » is complete, and as means and resources allow, a proper conceptual video, or more likely a short film, will be released.

Meanwhile, I hope you enjoy the new music !
