Sentimental Parlour Music is the debut album of composer/sound
artist Desmond Knight. The opening track, “Pool”, is an underwater
nocturne that fuses Knight’s recording of pool tubes humming in
the night with a duet for soprano and soprano saxophone overlaid
by composer Noah Kaplan. Knight’s singular catalogue of captured
and found ephemeral sound is cut up and reassembled to form
the broad worlds of “Bridge” and “July 4th Fragment”.
“Sentimental Parlour Music” features liner notes by Hampton Fancher
and design by Pablo Delcan (included with the digital releases).
