Cinema Braille combines multiple genres and disciplines of music with sound design and recording skills to deliver a fantastic, multifaceted performance to be appreciated on many levels of listening.
The music of Cinema Braille defies description as adamantly as it defies genre guidelines. It brings together the musical disciplines of all times and places, fusing them together in a grand unification of the commonplace and the esoteric. A celebration of all sound, it brings together what is known to a babe's ear and what was never heard, even by the old. Like a film score to itself, the music conjures up images and stories unique to each of us and takes the listener on a journey to the farthest universes of the mind,as long as the mind is kept open. Like writing in Braille, it gives us a way to see what we can not.
Cinema Braille's debut album, Blank Screen is comprised of three sections. The first is a three-part composition, titled "Bondage." It takes the listener through a time-traveling experience of the pain of imprisonment, the longing for freedom and the despair and final redemption of the hopeless. The second is the Ferrous Suite, which speaks of the bonds of friendship and the tests of fate. The third and final section is a short farewell piece to the land of snow, birch and white nights.
