Music For Isolation (Suite) is an expanded 9-track version of the original 4-track EP, which was first released in March 2020. It has been fully remastered by Rafael Anton Irisarri and is now available as a 6-panel CD digipak, as well as the usual digital/streaming formats.
A year ago to the day, I released the Music For Isolation EP. It was written very quickly, during those terrible early days of the COVID-19 pandemic. Obviously, the world has changed dramatically since, with unspeakable numbers of lives lost. No doubt many of you reading this have faced grief during the last year. It’s one thing to read about worldwide pandemics from history books, but it’s something else entirely to live through one.
Returning to the music 12 months later, I take solace in the fact that we’re hopefully approaching the end of it, with those elusive lights now flickering on the horizon. I read a beautiful review of the original EP by a DJ/producer named Yasmean, whose words perfectly encapsulated my intentions with this work. I have quoted it below and in many ways, her words encouraged me to revisit the music and close the book on it. Through the hard work and selflessness of our brightest people, this dark chapter in our lives will eventually come to an end. I remain hopeful for what the future may bring. Perhaps through the misery of the last 12 months, it has also given us a once in a lifetime opportunitity for self-reflection and growth. Let’s see what we do with it.
