Woven together with cello, violin and panpipe, to create “a sound that’s both contemporary and ancient.”

Composer and cellist Patrick Belaga is releasing a new album called Blutt, via PAN this April.

The album’s nine tracks were inspired by unidentified music Belaga heard whilst on a road trip in the Gallipoli peninsula.

Blutt subsequently aims to fuse “organic instrumentals and electronic production into a sound that’s both contemporary and ancient,” drawing on field recordings, panpipes, cello and violin.

It follows PAN’s release of Eartheater’s ambient version of her 2020 album Phoenix: Flames Are Dew Upon My Skin, called Phoenix: La Petite Mort Édition.
