Distance Between Places – Alan Hankers
By Pathos Trio
Distance Between Places was inspired by the relationship between the soundscape of a particular place and memory. Much of the work is comprised of individual musical streams that are independent in terms of rhythm, timbre, and expressive shape, but still, allow for an overall blending that results in a unified sonic picture.
Similar to the amalgamation of independent sounds that one might associate with a busy city, these layers are too complex for us to recollect precisely, but we can bring to mind an abstraction of what we remember.
