Eery interdimensional post modern-classical dreamscapes. This is Part 3 of a trilogy of albums that chart the nonsensical journeys of a fantastical lemon girl through oneiric lands. Inspired by Homer, Lewis Carroll and James Joyce, Philippe Petit provides a wide ranging sonic palette through a variety of acoustic and processed instruments that all complement the narrative and thematic framework. Our heroine is slowly drifting back to reality through post-industrial piano preparations tinkering with phantom dances on dulcimer string serenades. Hidden outer-universe film score orchestras and interstellar folk ballads lurk amidst the pulsating cosmic drone clouds of stardust pollution. Delicate textures washed with corrosive layerings, this is equally accessible and alienating.
