Well this looks like an absolute treat. 'Black Sarabande' is a collection of piano pieces written and performed by Robert Haigh. The compositions are sparse and skeletal, bolstered only by the occasional synth pad or, in one case, the 'dissonant sounds of industry' (yum, yes please). Haigh's pieces are rooted in a sense of place, namely the pit town where he grew up. They conjur images of something deathly quiet, eerie, and desolate.
This man is a total legend, with records dating back to 1984 where he appeared on his own Le Rey Records label and later on Nurse With Wounds United Dairies imprint. He then went on to produce innovative Drum & Bass as the one and only Omni Trio!
