You may have heard Patrick Belaga playing his cello in various guises for TV or Netflix but as a composer, he makes creative and unconventional music. Whilst best known for his string work, Patrick enjoys breaking the classical music mould by merging weird improvisations and strange effects together. This means his music sounds off-kilter and underground.
His forthcoming album is called ‘Blutt’ and is due out on the 2nd of April. It contains nine weird and wonderful tracks involving piano, strings, synths and lots of things you don’t often expect from a classical composer. It won’t be for everyone but I feel like that’s the point. The lead single is ‘The Tunnel is a Tower’ and feels like a trickle of synth bubbles bouncing along with a cello drone. I find its lack of direction really alluring and I simply don’t know why. I’d be interested in what others think. Patrick Belaga says that the album is like remembering half of a powerful dream after you wake up. I think that’s a great way to describe the track.
Enjoy ‘The Tunnel is a Tower’ below.
