A Broken Consort: Landscapes As Music
It must be an incredible treat to see landscapes as music. Under the moniker A Broken Consort and his own name, Richard Skelton sketches ambient abstract portraits of the British countryside. Like the minimalists before him, who often belie their genre name, Skelton crafts sonically diverse compositions — in a flutter of drones, they move like volcanic ash in cinematic slow motion. Given recent volcanic events, perhaps news networks can find respite in A Broken Consort’s meditations on nature
