about

‘Sentences’ is the second single from Digitonal’s much anticipated third studio album, ‘Set the Weather Fair’, due for release on 23rd October.

Henry Purcell's ‘March’ from his ‘Funeral Sentences’ originally composed in 1695 for the State Funeral of Queen Mary has been recontextualised many times, most notably by both Wendy Carlos in her original Clockwork Orange score, and also by proto-trance act Cygnus X's as their 'Orange Theme'.

Digitonal’s inspired take on this soars and swells, starting and ending with Dobson’s exquisite piano playing, enhanced further by the tender and delicate sounds of his clarinet. The whole track builds up into a wide and beautiful expanse of sound before finally quietly falling back into exquisite fragility. It gives us a sense of solemnity and stateliness - there is a depth and loveliness here - the music is utterly beautiful.
 
“I love the way ambient music continues to evolve into the broadest of churches. For me, it’s about wordless expression, in the same way that abstract art can evoke more emotion than the figurative."
