Spirits & Ancestors
This is a piece of music composed by Patsy Gamble in memory of those close to us who are no longer here, bringing their spirits back among us. Featuring Patsy on soprano saxophone, samples of her aunt and uncle talking about their lives and her father playing guitar – this is the first time they have played together….
With a dreadful year 2020 behind us, with this piece of music I am trying to express some of the feelings of loss and isolation many of us are experiencing at the moment.
Disquietude means a state of uneasiness or anxiety, and with the state of the world as it is at the moment: with fears about COVID and with many people losing everything and being displaced, this collective uncertainty and anxiety was in the forefront of my mind when I started composing this track.
