Pythagoras’ Ghost

A special audio production and the first Western Front CD recording release. Microtonal music based on the Table of Pythagoras, composed on the computer for four wind instruments. It is also a meditation on the last cantos of Dante’s Inferno and the Sir John Franklin expedition to the Northwest Passage. These events provoke a number of ideas: the relationship between nature and civilization, the fragility of comfort, the encumbering baggage of civilization, our illusory trust in technology.
