Chatwin, Ben – “Sleeper Awakes, The” – [Village Green]
Written and recorded at Ben Chatwin’s(of Talvihorros) home studio in Scotland. Inspired by the writing of H.G. Wells, ‘The Sleeper Awakes’ is Chatwin’s first album to appear under his own name. ‘The Sleeper Awakes’ represents the idea of a future that has been and gone. Before the information and telecommunications revolution there was a beautiful yet weird, naivety about what the future might bring.A one hundred-year-old Dulcitone (a kind of portable piano) was used extensively, making it sit with modern electronics and synthesis. The pairing of older, traditional instruments with modern recording techniques and processes is something that Chatwin is very interested in.”
Sounds like Electro-Synth-Ambient for a Ballerina Song Box.
