Night Set

Night Set as an album is a collection of works (set) united by the common theme of the ‘night.’ The album gets its name from its namesake composition by Gregory Wanamaker, which was the thematic impetus for this recording project. The time of ‘night’ has fascinated and inspired humanity for as long as we have recorded history, from fears of the dark to myths and beliefs in increased spiritual presence in the darkest hours of the evening. Night brings a time of darkness, the absence of light, which triggers the imagination as well as other complex and powerful emotions in the human mind. This album contains six works that explore various aspects of nighttime: dreams, shadows, darkness, dawn, quiet, monsters, and spirits.
