Hannah Peel & Paraorchestra with Charles Hazlewood combine on new work 'The Unfolding'.
Hannah Peel released her wonderful album 'Fir Wave' earlier this year, gaining a Mercury nomination in the process.
For her next project, the Northern Irish composer revisits a long-standing association, working on a long-form endeavour with Paraorchestra.
Eight-part collaboration 'The Unfolding' was recorded in snippets of time during the pandemic, with the musicians utilising the famed Real World studios.
Hannah Peel wanted to embrace organic instrumentation, commenting:
"'The Unfolding' is almost a life form in itself taken from the muddy cells of the earth and taking flight into the air then returning to the elements. It’s like a character in itself. It’s a new way of seeing."
Set to be released on April 1st, you can pre-order 'The Unfolding' HERE.
Check out a trailer for the project below.
