Journey To Cassiopeia

This is an interesting and dramatic way to start the week. Hannah Peel has an album out soon based around an exploration of space travel and ‘one person’s journey to outer space, recounting the story of an unknown, elderly, pioneering, electronic musical stargazer and her lifelong dream to leave her terraced home in the mining town of Barnsley, South Yorkshire, to see Cassiopeia for herself’

Musically it combines analogue synths, found sounds, the sound of brass players breathing and spitting, Hannah’s voice and a colliery band. If the track below, Sunrise Through the Dusty Nebula, is anything to go by it promises to be very good indeed. This is moving and inventive music, a colliery band with one foot deep underground and one in deep space.
