A most beautiful story and Music from “Aberfan”

Aberfan: The mistake that cost a village its children

By Ceri Jackson, BBC News

Here, also, are a few small samplings of music from Aberfan.  The first, “Rain Sequence”, an excerpt from our first, recent studio session.  

Second, “First Hymn”, a demo excerpt, yet to be properly recorded.  The singing of this hymn, as I understand from the news article above, was postponed as “they would sing it before they went home”. 

“Rock Sequence”, at the time of the collapse: 

Last, an excerpt of “Altered Rain”, the impossibility and hope of life forever altered. 

In deepest honor.

Aberfan (7 pianos, percussion, voice and tools of rescue)  is a sponsored project of New York Foundation for the Arts (NYFA). Contributions are tax deductible.
