“Constantly transiting and transitioning, suspended in a liminal state.”

*2023 stock* Following 2013’s release of the album “Stranger to my room” on Kitchen.Label, the Singapore-based award-winning composer sonicbrat (Darren Ng) returns with his long awaited follow-up album “Murmurations”. “Murmurations” depicts a quiet longing for beauty so distant, one can only see with eyes closed, like a lost wayfarer set out in search of questions without answers. It is constantly transiting and transitioning, suspended in a liminal state.

The album features a series of intimate and introspective compositions recorded entirely on the acoustic piano, employing various miking techniques to extract innate mechanical sounds, wood tensions, natural vibrations on piano soundboard and strings, and using them as the only source of the compositions’ sonic palette. Drawing inspiration from the natural phenomenon of migratory birds to reflect on one’s own displacing nature in life and estrangement from nature itself, “Murmurations” paints the chimerical journey of an imaginary starling, charting its flight through fabricated landscapes as it inevitably transits in the passage of time.
