FIERRO EX MACHINA – “A SAIL OF ALL TEARS”

Centered around a low and heavy bass line, “A Sail of All Tears” accrues tension-mounting strings, percussive elements that are sampled and filtered to recall post-industrial scrapes sounds of decaying machinery and eerie drones as it expands out from it’s base and slowly mutates to fit it’s new environment. These sounds are sourced from Alex Norelli’s harp – a stunning contrast to the shape in our popular consciousness that this instrument takes. Instead, “A Sail of All Tears” explores the full range of sonic possibilities that the harp has, creating otherworldly soundscapes hatched from never-ending experimentation.
