Gary Wilkinson – SPIRITUALIST CHURCH///Symphony

Orchestral music created using cut-ups, loops and layers of public domain classical pieces. Covering stories and subjects from former mining communities that have been left behind. This piece is about a local Spiritualist Church which haunted the artist as a child, exploring childhood fears and the terrifying things that were imagined to manifest inside the church. It considers the exploitation of the bereaved that would take place within but also the comfort that people look for from those who’ve passed over.
