RELEASE DETAILS:

Ghosts and Angels is the breathtaking first-time collaboration between classical composer Amanda Handel and highly-regarded electronic artist Greg Seiler (aka Comatone).
The album began with field recordings Amanda made in Spain, which were then sampled and manipulated by Greg Seiler. The pair then worked together to mold and layer textures which complimented Amanda’s prepared compositions.

REVIEWS:

“one of the most unique albums I’ve heard this year; hauntingly beautiful, creative, cohesive, and compositionally advanced, yet experimental at the same time — a rare musical treat”
The Silent Ballet

“Stunningly executed and realised, Ghosts And Angels represents one of the most inspired collaborations of its type to emerge for a long time; it’s also an album that rewards beautifully upon repeat listening”
Cyclic Defrost
