German Düsseldorf-based composer Orson Hentschel has announced the release of a new album called Heavy Light which will be out on May 27th via Denovali Records. According to the press release, it consists of three parts – a 3-channel film installation, a visual live – performance and the album itself. Hentschel expands the format of the conventional album to an audiovisual experience by merging elements of film, dance and music in a synthesis of arts. The project evolved in the time of Corona, which first affected him visually when the city (Berlin) turned into a ghost town during the first lockdown. Light became the most vibrant element in the city, which influenced both picture and sound. Metallic, sometimes harsh and electrifying, surroundings of the urban life are landscaped into eclectic pulses.
