Movement #1


The first of three movements from Navi’s forthcoming debut album “Derelict_528” presents an atmospheric imagined film score, with overtones of modern classical, drone, doom jazz and metal – all reinforced with sub bass culled from modern dub influences.

Compositions of acoustic instrumentation are augmented through an electronic lens that serves to enhance the sense of space and mood, producing a dense, layered, cinematic journey. 

Cold and dissonant droning soundscapes are juxtaposed with moments of warmth and intimacy creating a sense of longing through isolation; dusty samples shift and fade within the auditory view, like decaying memories of the past clouded by time and circumstance.

A dystopic future swathed in the fading gauze of an abandoned past.
