about

Hesperian Garden is a 28-minute EP drawn from my continuing exploration of 'speculative music'.

In speculative music, Pythagorean notions about the relationship between number and the cosmos are explored through acoustic theory.

For the curious, this download comes with a handwritten essay explaining the compositional ideas underlying the pieces... but I hope you will enjoy it regardless, as music between two worlds; in equal parts archaic and modern.

Download includes:
* 4x digital audio files
* 16-pages of handwritten liner notes
* Supplementary paper on Dee's Hieroglyphic Monad and music.

"Hesperian Garden is ceremonial music for lost practices, modern electronics evoking the sound of wind through fields of menhirs. Music for prising open the barrier between the ancient and now." - Ears for Eyes (earsforeyes.co.uk/2017/08/09/phil-legard-hesperian-gardens-larkfall/amp/)
