“How far is St. Helena from a little child at play!
What makes you want to wander there with all the world between?”
- Rudyard Kipling -
Presenting Hiele's soundtrack to the film "Saints", by Dieter Deswarte. Eleven tracks on this 10 inch vinyl to be released in November 2016.
Specks of land in the vast infinite sea, Islands have long fascinated the human imagination. Distant and isolated worlds offer possibilities of escape and create fears of entrapment. The tiny island of Saint Helena is so remote, it lies a five-day boat journey from the nearest mainland.
Oddly exotic & gently paced, Hiele’s soundtrack drags the listener into eleven pastorales bulking of fragile sustained breaths of melody. Accents of resonating strings, airy playfulness & almost sacred fragments of droning nature drive on the repeating instrumentarium of clarinet, double bass and various electronics.
All music written, produced and mixed by Roman Hiele. Clarinet played by Valgerður Sigurðardóttir. Masterend by Frederic Alstadt at Ångström mastering. Cover photo by Sylvie De Weze.
“Saints” the documentary film takes the viewer onto a voyage of discovery. An exploration of isolation and the impact that it can have on a small society. As the construction of the long awaited airport begins, the Saints wonder how their lives will change as the high-end eco-tourists start to arrive.
