JP Meldrum – glasnevin cemetery

"glasnevin cemetery" is a beautiful piece – carrying a sort of luminous sadness that you often find in romantic poetry. Timbrally it has some eerie undertones that make the composition even deeper. This impression comes from the instrument that the tune was played on and the unorthodox way it was manipulated. Read the artists's comment to learn more.

JP Meldrum
I named the song after a cemetery in Dublin - the one Patty Dignam is buried in in James Joyce's Ulysses. I was inspired by the spirit of the Irish folk song, wherein the melody is at once haunting and is celebratory. Secondly, I had been revisiting on my father's favourite songs Dublin Blues by Guy Clark - a death-wish country song. I recorded it with a tenor saxophone, playing in C, and intentionally autotuned it into a different key to give it this uncanny voicing and harmonic texture. Stylistically, I was thinking of the aforementioned irish folk song, along with Bon Iver and Sam Gendel.
ARIA – it's over now

ARIA's latest single, "it's over now" is both convincingly raw and pleasantly glossy. This paradoxic character of the song is reflected in its catchy hook that "encapsulates the cathartic process of shedding emotional baggage and reclaiming one's sense of self-worth", according to the song's press release.
