'Soundtrack to your imagination' is Hugh Doolan’s latest digital album.
In essence the album is a collection of instrumentals that could appear in a variety of film or documentary genre - from horror flick to modern western to Inuit drama!
The idea is for the listener to conjure up the imagery for themselves and simply embrace the atmospheres and soundscapes.
The instrumentation deployed is very broad - guitars, viola, bamboo flutes, Synth, Dr. Rex drums, symphony orchestra sounds and lots more!
In truth some of the pieces were drafts for films thet fell to the cutting room floor so-to-speak; the rest are organic pieces that stemmed from experimentation in discovering a narrative when writing and recording.
A good example is the opener Maiden Speech, written to mark and celebrate the release of Aung San Suu Kyi from house arrest in Burma.
