Album Notes
Wilhelmina’s Dream : Electronic & Acoustic Works

“ …A bizarre radio play that is fascinating to listen to. …A highly enjoyable 30 minutes of sound manipulation.” -- Terrascope Online

Imagine a mystical radio station that broadcasts from the subconscious. Fleeting visions. Fragments of thought. Displaced melodies rise and fall, clinging to strands of memory. A haunting mélange of sound collages and delicate instrumental compositions. A luminous atlas of interior landscapes. A sound world by turns lulling, enchanting, eerie, and melancholy; where ultimately beauty reigns supreme, and even despair wears a halo of radiance.

Joe Frawley (b. July 4, 1971) is a composer and visual artist working out of Norwich, Connecticut whose electronic Sound Collage works have garnered international acclaim. Using found sounds, field recordings, recontextualized speech, and samples from classical music (e.g., Ravel's Introduction and Allegro, and Peter Warlock's The Curlew) the composer has created challenging yet accessible sound compositions bearing a hypnotic, dream-like quality. __

Dreamlike & transporting
I was looking for something a little different, and I found it in this wonderful CD. It's indeed like a broadcast from the Unconscious, evoking memories you didn't know existed, and carrying you into the strange, lyrical, sometimes unsettling world of dreams. A classically lovely piece will suddenly fuzz over with whispered voices; a claustrophobic sensation will suddenly open up into a floating expanse of dangerous beauty. This collage of sounds & music will grow on you with repeated listenings & is well worth seeking out. More, please!
