Edgar Allan Poe: A Life Of Hope & Despair CD
Released as soundtrack for the Poe-inspired art show Spirits Of The Dead presented by The Scarlet Letter Press & Gallery in Salem, MA in October 2014. As opposed to his literary works, this album explores the melancholic & quaint life, love, and death of Poe. The mood and ambience that usually live on the periphery of 1476’s work takes center stage here. Each song draws upon neoclassical and experimental influences to weave piano & string sections with analogue synthesizers, samples, glitch, and drone into an atmospheric, yet engaging, album. A dark & low key affair.
For fans of Ulver, Coil, Frédéric Chopin, Current 93, and Sigur Rós.
Originally released in 2014 by New England art collective Seraphim House. Now reissued by Germany’s wayward metal & dark folk label Prophecy Productions.
