Church bells and live piano meander through ambient.
Nocturne is comprised of three live piano pieces recorded at the 2019 edition of the Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival, alongside pre-recorded bell and ambient sounds.
“The same as one can see faces and animals in the shapes of clouds, one can sometimes – particularly at night between the state of sleep and consciousness – let music structures appear out of the noises that surround you,” says Schmidt.
Nocturne follows Mute’s release of a 4xLP box set of Schmidt’s solo work and film scores, called Villa Wunderbar.
