Phrenetikos (album)

I composed this piece for a concert at Edinburgh International Harp Festival 2016. It is the musical counterpart to my exploration of the desire to belong to a community, and the beginnings of an understanding as to why we humans might crave this.

It was composed in East London, a place that's a stark contrast with the remote Scottish Highlands where I spent my early years. Phrenetikos feels like an onomatopoeic word for the feeling I often get from spending lots of time on social media and is the Greek origin of the word 
frenetic.

This music is a kind of fusion of feelings related to place and people - cinematic harp!
