Description

Jerusalem created by Janae Jean.

"When creating this piece, I sought to combine elements of the "Divine Comedy" itself, such as the frequent use of the number three and the use of beasts to symbolise the three types of sins, along with ambient sounds of night in the medieval world. 

"I chose to play an acoustic guitar with a passerelle (an additional bridge) that turns the guitar into a harp-like instrument. As this timbre is similar to that of a medieval zither. Additionally, I used tympani mallets on the guitar strings to create percussive hammered dulcimer-like effects. The ambient pads were created by manipulating recorded guitar samples that I recorded. Listen closely to hear other samples including the sounds of Dante's steps, the doors to the gate of hell, and church bells in the distance."

Part of the Inferno project to imagine and compose the sounds of Dante’s Hell, marking the 700th anniversary of The Divine Comedy. To find out more, visit http://www.citiesandmemory.com/inferno
