Composer Andrew Orkin’s stirring composition “One for the Faint of Heart” is a deep exploration of space and silence with its use of strings, cavernous piano lines and drones. More than that, however, it is a fundraising mechanism for “The Gift of the Givers”.
“Cirrus was written and recorded to raise funds for the South African charity, Gift of the Givers, who are providing meals to those who have no access to food due to the COVID-19 pandemic. As the world locked-down due to COVID-19, the entire music industry ground to a halt. As a collective from New York, Berlin, Ukraine and South Africa, we have come together via remote recording to create a work that not only contributes to our own sense of purpose and community during this time, but also raises funds and awareness for those most in need.”
